Summary Evaluation of EUREAPA as a Tool for Informing EU Policy Decisions on the Basis of the Footprint Family of Indicators
The OPEN:EU project team assesses the usefulness of the EUREAPA tool for policy makers at various stages in the policy cycle and across relevant policy areas. The report is meant to help users who are new to EUREAPA understand what is behind the tool and what they can use it for. The report is available for download.
It examines relevant policies, instruments and targets in several EU policy areas and explores the extent to which the EUREAPA tool can inform policy decisions in these areas:
- Biodiversity and fisheries,
- Climate change and energy,
- Raw materials,
- Regional development (cohesion policy),
- Sustainable consumption and production,

The report provides a practical example of how to use the EUREAPA tool, presenting screen shots of the tool, and it identifies the limitations and opportunities for further development of the Footprint Family of indicators and the EUREAPA tool.
