The results of the INSPIRE evaluation (REFIT) and the implementation report provide a clear picture on the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive at its half-way point. A lot of progress has been made but there is no single country which has fully implemented the Directive to date. At the same time, the most challenging deadlines are still ahead. Further to the orientation debate at the MIG-P in December 2015, it was agreed to translate the direction provided by the MIG-P into a renewed and reviewed Work Programme for the collaboration between the EU level partners and the Member States, the MIWP 2016-2020.
