    Mid-term evaluation of “Securing Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in Huangshan Municipality”
    Project code: GCP/CPR/049/GFF GEF ID: 4526

    The project's specific objective is to “evaluate, adapt, and implement relevant best practices derived from the successful management of Huangshan National Scenic Reserve to strengthen and upgrade the existing municipal system of protected areas (PAs).” This is to be achieved by adopting a tiered, sequential approach applied to different classes of Nature Reserves (NR) grouped to best benefit from project-supported activities in a cost-effective manner. This MTE is being conducted for the purposes of both accountability and learning of GEF, GCU, FAO, and other participating institutions. This MTE documents important lessons to guide the remaining phase of the project and will serve as an input to improve its implementation. Likewise, it will present strategic recommendations in order to ensure that all the planned results of the project will be achieved if considered realistic. Project code: GCP/CPR/049/GFF GEF ID: 4526

    Mid-term evaluation of “Securing Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in China's Dongting Lake Protected Areas”
    GCP/CPR/043/GFF

    The Dongting Wetlands is China’s second-largest freshwater lake and one of the 200 key global ecozones. Its high biodiversity serves as an important ecosystem for over 120 bird species and many endangered species. It plays an important socioeconomic role in the area as nearly 16 million people live around the lake. Despite the importance of the wetlands, the services it provides are increasingly at risk. Loss of habitat arising from sector conflicts and economic interests of local farmers and fishers has resulted in a decline in wildlife populations and in some cases entire species. FAO intervened to secure the conservation of biodiversity in the area through strengthening existing management efforts and promoting long-term sustainable development. Activities such as hunting, fishing, planting and reclamation have been stopped and most policy level outcome targets for biodiversity have been reached. The mid-term evaluation makes recommendations for the second half of the project, with a particular focus on knowledge management. It recommends a systematic approach to sharing good practices and technical support with learning facilities across the various project sites. GCP/CPR/043/GFF GEF ID: 4356

    Terminal evaluation of the project “Securing Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in Huangshan Municipality”
    Project code: GCP/CPR/049/GFF - GEF ID: 4526

    The FAO project “Securing Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in Huangshan Municipality” was implemented in China (Huangshan Municipality) and funded by the Global Environment Facility. The rationale behind the project intervention was that the biodiversity conservation objectives were not being fully achieved through the existing mechanisms. The final independent evaluation of the project rated it as Satisfactory, and verified that most of the outcomes and outputs of the project were achieved. The main shortcoming was limited progress with best practices and lessons learned from the project being taken up and replicated elsewhere in non-participating nature reserves. Evaluation recommendations included finalizing the sustainability plan; continuing to support non-participating reserves to improve management effectiveness; assessing the effectiveness of a related innovative protected area management model; and considering opportunities to promote internationally the project’s achievements, best practices and innovations.
