18 Jun 2015 | newsletter | project: 3589   Issue 1 on Building Knowhow on the Application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management in Sabah
The ADB /GEF-supported Regional Technical Assistance for Coastal and Marine Resources Management in the Coral Triangle - Southeast Asia (CTI-SEA) is being implemented in the Sulu-Celebes/Sulawesi Large Marine Ecosystem, which includes Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines (CT3). Experts from the CT3 have identified overexploitation of marine resources and habitat loss among the key problems in transboundary waters. Specifically, the coral reef fisheries in the region have been adversely affected by the high demand for live grouper; rampant illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing; and the rapidly growing population in coastal areas. To address these critical issues, the CTI-SEA has taken steps to address IUU fishing at both the regional and national levels. In Malaysia, the project is building the capacity of government staff and other concerned stakeholders on the application of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAFM) for coral reef fishes. This experience note discusses CTI-SEA's training on Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management to a total of 56 fisheries personnel and stakeholders under a cost-sharing scheme with DOF Sabah and DOF Malaysia.

11 May 2015 | report | project: 6952   Gulf of Mexico LME - Strategic Action Programme (SAP)
This Strategic Action Programme (SAP) is a policy document negotiated by the governments of United Mexican States (Mexico) and the United States of America (U.S.) through the coordination of the appointed Technical National Focal Points to the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem Project (GoM LME), the Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) of Mexico and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the U.S. The document outlines the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the GoM LME and aims to promote shared policy goals and legal and institutional actions to address priority transboundary problems that have been previously identified by both NOAA and SEMARNAT in the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA). The TDA was completed in October 2011 and is the primary source of scientific and technical information for the recommended strategic actions presented. This document and the TDA have been developed as part of the project, “Integrated Assessment and Management of the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem”, with the financial support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the implementation support of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

30 Mar 2015 | newsletter | project: 3589   Issue 1 on Climate Change Adaptation: Seaweed-producing village heeds wake-up call for early action adaptation planning
The climate change adaptation subproject of CTI-SEA in Indonesia aims to raise the awareness of national and local government planners as well as coastal communities about climate change. As a first step, a participatory vulnerability assessment (VA) was conducted in Arakan, Tatapaan, South Minahasa in February 2014 using the Guide to Vulnerability Assessment and Local Early Action Planning (LEAP) tool. Results showed that the village was vulnerable to the impacts of climate change due to their exposure, high sensitivity and low capacity of the community. The process not only catalyzed local early action but also taught citizens that they had to develop their own adaptation plans based on their needs and ensure that these are ready for institutional support.

06 Mar 2015 | evaluation-report | project: 2701   Terminal Evaluation Report for the UNDP GEF Project Development and adoption of a Strategic Action Programme for balancing water uses and sustainable natural resource management in the OrangeSenqu River transboundary basin
Despite considerable challenges and constraints that could not have been foreseen during project Development, the Project has delivered high quality products and has engendered strong ownership at many stakeholder levels, from village communities to senior political figures. The latter has been manifested by the SAP endorsement by the Conference of Ministers of the ORASECOM on 7 August 2014. As a consequence, and not withstanding these constraints and challenges, the Project has received a Terminal Evaluation Rating of 6 (Highly Satisfactory). The project has delivered 1. A high quality TDA, 2. An equally high quality SAP endorsed by the ministers, accompanied with NAPs, and 3. Successfully implemented SAP demonstration projects on the ground. This is an International Waters foundation project that has been undertaken under a fairly limited 4-year window and with a fairly constrained budget. As such it must be considered to have been highly satisfactory in its delivery despite any overarching constraints that could have impacted on the final objectives. It has delivered everything it was designed to deliver and more besides, including a clear and obvious level of political commitment and ownership. On this basis the Terminal Evaluator’s primary recommendation would be for UNDP to seek further support and investment from GEF to implement the Strategic Action Programme in close collaboration with ORASECOM and its partners.
12 Feb 2015 | evaluation-report | project: 3305   BCLME SAP-IMP MidTerm Evaluation Report
The purpose of the Mid-Term Evaluation (MTE) has been to examine the progress and performance of the project since the start of its implementation. The MTE includes the evaluation of both the progress in project implementation, measured against planned outputs and outcomes set forth in the Project Document, and the assessment of features related to the process involved in achieving those outcomes, and the progress towards project objective. The evaluation also identifies and addresses causes and issues that constrain the achievement of set targets. This Mid-term Evaluation has been conducted in a participatory manner consistent with its essential objective to assess the project implementation and impacts in order to provide a basis for improvement in implementation over the remaining time of the project, and other decisions.
11 Feb 2015 | evaluation-report | project: 3305   BCLME SAP-IMP Terminal Evaluation Report
The Terminal Evaluation has been carried out according to the guidance and principles of UNDP, GEF and UNEG which require such an evaluation in the closing stages of a project for the benefit of the key stakeholders including GEF as the main source of funding, UNDP as the Implementing Agency and the Governments as the prime beneficiaries. It aimed to provide a comprehensive overall assessment of the project and critically assess achievements, administrative and technical strategies, issues and constraints. The methodology employed in this evaluation was planned and described in the Inception Report which was presented in the early stages of the mission.
