    This report provides an account of experiences in applying participatory monitoring and evaluation (PM&E) in marine protected areas (MPAs) for sustainable fisheries management in North and West Africa. The document reports on two FAO initiatives: the development of a PM&E system in the context of MPA management by the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME) Project, piloted in the Gambia and Senegal, and the SuiviCOM Project in Al Hoceima National Park in Morocco, integrated in the MedPartnership programme (Activity 3.2.3). Following an overview of the background and the overall context of the two PM&E systems, the document details how the systems were developed along with related challenges and opportunities. Based on lessons learned from the two experiences, practical recommendations are provided for setting up a PM&E system for fisheries in an MPA. Ce rapport présente des expériences d'application du système de suivi et d'évaluation participatifs (SEP) dans les aires marines protégées (AMP) pour la gestion durable des pêches en Afrique du Nord et de l'Ouest. Le document analyse deux initiatives de la FAO: le développement d'un système SEP dans le cadre de la gestion des AMP par le projet de Grand écosystème marin du courant des Canaries (CCLME) réalisé en Gambie et au Sénégal et le projet SuiviCOM dans le Parc national d’Al Hoceima au Maroc, intégré dans le programme MedPartnership (activité 3.2.3). Après une présentation du contexte et du cadre général des deux systèmes SEP, le document analyse la façon dont les systèmes ont été élaborés et les défis qui se sont posés ainsi que les opportunités connexes. Puis, à partir des enseignements tirés des deux expériences, il fait des recommandations pratiques pour la mise en place d'un système SEP des pêcheries qui opèrent dans des AMP.
