Effectively Managing Networks of Marine Protected Areas in Large Marine Ecosystems in the ASEAN Region (ASEAN ENMAPS)

To develop and improve the management of networks of marine protected areas and marine corridors within selected Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) in the ASEAN region for the conservation of globally significant biodiversity and support for sustainable fisheries and other ecosystem goods and services.

Investment Mobilized from the Philippine government is the amount earmarked for the construction of the Tubbataha Reef National Park (TRNP) Ranger Station.

Investment Mobilized from the CSO, Saguda Palawan, Inc. covers funds from various non-government sources (i.e. philanthropic organizations, grant

mechanisms of international organizations and private companies, and other donors) that are downloaded to and managed by Saguda to support activities in the

TRNP. These funds are allocated for specific activities, implemented and monitored by the TRNP Management Office. Investment Mobilized from Donor Agencies

(EU, USAID, KfW, GIZ) are relevant portions of donor funding that will support the implementation of the complementary or parallel project approaches (i.e., MPA

management, ICM implementation, sustainable fisheries, knowledge management) in the same candidate sites, seascape, or LMEs of concern as the ASEAN

ENMAPS. Initial consultations were undertaken by ACB with representatives of the donor agencies and the implementers/coordinators of the projects to discuss

co-financing support and to seek their ‘in-principle’ agreements for co-financing. Investment Mobilized from ACB comes from various donors of biodiversity

conservation projects in the participating countries with parallel components as the ASEAN ENMAPS, of which project funds are being managed by the ACB

under a Grant Agreement instrument. These projects will run during the duration of this GEF-supported project. Further consultations will be conducted with

partners and additional co-financing will be identified during the PPG
