In 2025, an evaluation of the fulfillment of objectives will be published in the form of the Medium-Term Evaluation of the State Environmental Policy 2030.

The specific selection and form of type measures will be the subject of valid component and sectoral strategic documents, which must take into account the objectives of the present Policy.
