Prevention and Evaluation Resources Kit (PERK)

To improve planning you will also find the EMCDDA’s Prevention and Evaluation Resources Kit (PERK) helpful – http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/publications/perk

This tool compiles evidence-based prevention principles and promotes the notion that prevention planning and evaluation are interlinked. It provides a step-by-step guide that helps to determine whether a project is sound and well-designed.
