Has the implementation of the policy/measure been evaluated?: 
If yes, what are the main conclusions/recommendations?: 

The planning document Creative Latvia implemented a high hierarchical link with other medium-term development planning documents, creating vertical and horizontal links. At the same time, the Creative Latvia Guidelines are characterized by a high degree of internal coherence between the overarching goal, the problems, the priorities and their objectives, the directions of action and the tasks. The bottom-up approach has fostered the democratic involvement and participation of cultural actors and stakeholders in the development of Creative Latvia. It is necessary to increase the involvement of target groups in the development of the new cultural policy planning document. The Guidelines are viewed by those involved and those responsible for the implementation of Creative Latvia as a functional and useful document. The planning document successfully sets priorities, aims and summarizes all the most important medium-term tasks of the cultural policy, which allows it to be successfully used for argumentation of national and EU funding for implementation of strategically important activities.
