Together with the Natural Resources Institute Finland, SYKE has the main responsibility for the monitoring and evaluation of the METSO Programme. The aim of the monitoring is to evaluate the ecological, economical and political effects of METSO, and discover potential interactions among these effects.

Monitoring includes for instance compiling the annual summaries on the implementation of the measures included in METSO. From SYKE, Kimmo Syrjänen, Kaisu Aapala and Susanna Anttila (as a secretary) take part in the monitoring working group of METSO set up by the Ministry of the Environment.
