At their 10th  Ordinary Meeting (Tunis, November 1997), the Contracting Parties to the  Barcelona Convention decided that an evaluation of the activities of the  MAP components, including PAP/RAC, should be undertaken. In accordance with  this decision, the report entitled In-depth Evaluation of the Regional Activity Centre for the Priority Actions Programme (PAP/RAC) was prepared by a team of experts in 1999. 

The Report concludes that "PAP/RAC has  played an important role in meeting the objectives of the MAP", that  "PAP/RAC can continue to play a useful role, drawing on its rich technical  expertise and the store of goodwill among the Mediterranean coastal  states". The mission also concluded that "PAP/RAC had fulfilled, and in some  instances exceeded the results expected of it". 

An additional and more specific  evaluation was undertaken by Ms Alexandra Holland and Ms Nesrin Algan in  June 2001 which builds upon an earlier evaluation, and was intended to  explore, in particular, the cost-effectiveness of PAP/RAC. The scope of  this evaluation covers the period since the inception of PAP/RAC in  1980; with particular attention paid to the period 1991-2000.
