    Terminal evaluation of the project “Integrated management of marine and coastal areas of high value for biodiversity in continental Ecuador”
    GCP/ECU/084/GFF GEF 4770
    2021
    Also available in:

    In order to safeguard the high biodiversity value in coastal and mangrove areas in Ecuador, this project, with support from GEF, sought to develop an integrated management approach for the use and conservation of coastal and marine areas of high biodiversity value, by establishing conservation areas, strengthening mangrove concessions and integrating biodiversity conservation in fisheries management within conservation areas. It also sought to improve and sustain the livelihood of coastal communities depending on near shore fisheries, in particular fishermen and women of red and brown shell crab in the Gulf of Guayaquil and estuary of Cayapas - Mataje. The project suffered from numerous changes in the political landscape and a challenging implementation architecture; nevertheless, it remains relevant and overall achieved its stated objectives. The evaluation found the need to strengthen the alternatives production side of interventions to the same level as those pertaining to environmental protection in Ecuador.

    Expansion and long-term sustainability of mariculture in Kenya, where the potential for development is immense, requires proper planning that starting by appropriate zoning and by the right selection of sites followed by the adoption of good management practices. Appropriate zoning will determine where and how to best develop aquaculture enterprises that are socially inclusive, equitable and environmentally responsible, and which provides opportunities for sustainable and profitable aqua farming as well as the economic activities that grow around it. The main objective of this Atlas is to identify appropriate mariculture zones and sites that comprehended the objectives afore mentioned. This Atlas includes comprehensive information on various key themes and provides users with maps and satellite images showing where areas have been selected according to reliable information on the main site selection criteria within Kenya. It should be noted that decisions over siting are often complex and require interpretation of data and specific ground surveys. In general, for investors or government who wish to establish marine cage aquaculture projects along the Kenya coastline, this Atlas will assist in the selection of the most appropriate areas with the provision of geo-referenced information on some of the main criteria that may allow for a reduction of conflicts with other coastal users and minimizing environmental impacts.

    Proceedings of the workshop on coastal area planning and management in Asian tsunami-affected countries 2007

    Sound coastal area planning and management are key factors influencing the success and sustainability of rehabilitation and reconstruction in areas affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. In many places, unsustainable land management practices had degraded lands and vegetation prior to the tsunami and, to “build back better”, improved land and resource management systems are required. The lessons drawn from rehabilitation efforts in countries whose coastal lands were severely affected by the tsunami may also be applied by other countries seeking to improve their coastal area planning and management interventions. FAO organized this workshop – convened in Bangkok, Thailand from 27 to 29 September 2006 – to bring together field practitioners, policy analysts, coastal planners and technical experts from relevant sectors to exchange information on issues of key importance to post-tsunami rehabilitation with an emphasis on multisectoral interventions involving agriculture, fisheries and forestry. The workshop centred on the presentation of country papers for each of the eight Asian tsunami-affected countries, and three overview papers. Discussion groups were held to identify common issues among countries, share experiences, and identify actions that could be taken at various levels to support improved coastal area management. These proceedings document the efforts of the participants and the final outcomes of the meeting and constitute a valuable resource for those engaged in t he tsunami rehabilitation efforts and other similar activities.
