Developing a framework to monitor rural development policy in Ireland: Opportunities and challenges

The Economic and Social Research Institute has published “Developing a framework to monitor rural development policy in Ireland: Opportunities and challenges”.

This study, commissioned by the Department of Rural and Community Development, identifies a range of potential key performance indicators (KPIs) that can be used to monitor the impacts of rural development in Ireland. The report identifies KPIs that measure general levels of well-being in rural areas and other KPIs to measure the impact of particular scheme/fund-based measures, such as those being implemented to support remote working, revitalising rural towns and villages, and revitalising jobs for rural Ireland.

The report is available here.
