Nanny Bressers

Nanny Bressers wrote her PhD thesis (2011) on the evaluation of complex multi-actor knowledge and innovation programs. The central argument of this thesis is that the impact of these programs cannot be assessed with standard evaluation approaches, due to the complex causality of actions/outcomes. She developed an evaluation method in which programs are evaluated based on the receptivity of the program and its enviromnent towards each other, instead of looking at the achievement of pre-set objectives (as standard evaluation/ monitoring tends to do). Furthermore, she has participated in a variety of projects, including transition monitoring of Transumo and Living with Water, the organization of an innovation impulse in the Transtuno A15-project, the interim evaluation of policy program Room for the River, and an evaluation of program and test grounds of Waterkader Haaglanden. Her current research concentrates on two research projects. First, an intemational comparison (N etherlands-China) of urban water and climate adaptation projects, with a current emphasis on learning evaluation of two Rotterdam urban water initiatives. And second, an ongoing intemal leaming evaluation of EU FP7-project BRAIN POoL (a project about Beyond GDP knowledge brokerage).

Lisa Eriksson and Marie Wiktorsson

Evaluation Section, Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. They will show and discuss results and experiences from the latest in-depth evaluation of the Swedish environmental objectives and methodological challenges connected to the overall analysis. A new approach was used in the latest evaluation. One aim of the overall analysis was to analyze using new perspectives – starting from an overall level and then to divide and find new patterns. Major areas of cause and development are visualized in the analysis in order to broaden the picture for future enviromnental efforts.
