Scottish Raptor Monitoring Scheme

We carried out an evaluation of the Scottish Raptor Monitoring Scheme (SRMS) in early 2023 on behalf of the Scottish Wildlife Trust and other partners. The scheme had been operating for 20 years and ours was the first independent evaluation of the Scheme. We examined whether the SRMS is meeting its objectives, using an approach developed by the OECD that employs six criteria: relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability. The report concludes with lessons learnt, recommendations and an evaluation framework.
