    Final Evaluation of the Project “Sustainable Community-Based Management and Conservation of Mangrove Ecosystems in Cameroon”
    Project evaluation - Main report
    2018
    Also available in:

    Mangrove ecosystems provide a wide range of resources and services for people's livelihoods, which at the same time give rise to strong economic, social and demographic pressure. To address these challenges, the GEF project "Sustainable community-based management and conservation of mangrove ecosystems in Cameroon” developed strategic documents on mangroves; created platforms to promote dialogue among stakeholders; produced information on the status of mangroves in Cameroon and established a permanent monitoring system for determining changes in these ecosystems; and contributed to the launch and advancement to the final stages of processes for the classification of protected areas. While the project contributed to several outcomes at institutional level and it also increased community awareness on the importance of mangrove ecosystems, it did not achieve the expected results in support to long-term sustainability of local communities’ livelihoods. Moving forward, to see impacts there is still the need for a consolidation phase both at community and institutional level.

    This publication presents the findings of the terminal evaluation of the project ‘Securing biodiversity conservation and sustainable use in China’s Dongting Lake Protected Areas’ implemented in China’s Hunan Province. The project was designed to address key barriers to biodiversity conservation. The conclusions highlighted the overall relevance of project design, contribution to biodiversity conservation and strengthening of institutions and networks and the adequate role played by the executing and implementing agencies. Nevertheless, a strong sustainability plan managing existing risks is needed to reinforce sustainability prospects further and certain delays were noted during project implementation that contributed to inefficiencies. Key recommendations made were on the sustainability plan that required finalization and addressing potential risks to long-term impact, the need for the social impact of biodiversity conservation efforts to be fully considered and systematically recorded and that the future project designs should be updated with operational partners to address any contextual changes.

    Final evaluation of the project “Integrated management of mangrove and associated wetlands and coastal forest ecosystems in the Republic of the Congo”
    GCP/PRC/007/GFF
    2019
    Also available in:

    The project "Integrated management of mangroves and associated wetlands and coastal forest ecosystems in the Republic of the Congo" was implemented between July 2013 and December 2017 by the Government of the Republic of the Congo and FAO. The main phase of the final evaluation, which took place between July and August 2017, covered all the activities carried out under the different components. The evaluation recognized the relevance of the intervention given by its effort to develop and promote a community-based forest management system in the Congo. The project contributed to strengthening the national legislative and institutional framework on mangrove ecosystems, yet additional efforts are still necessary to mobilize the resources needed to implement the strategy and the plan developed as part of the project. At the time of the evaluation, no concrete activities had been implemented at community level, nevertheless the project contributed to having good awareness among communities on the importance of mangrove ecosystems.
