Global International Waters Assessment project is a holistic and globally comparable assessment of transboundary aquatic resources in the majority of the world’s international river basins and their adjacent seas, particularly in developing regions. A bottom-up and multidisciplinary approach was adopted that involved nearly natural and social scientists from around the world. project provides strategic guidance to the Global Environment Facility by identifying priorities for remedial and mitigatory actions in international waters.

An accurate rating of project outcomes would be "moderately satisfactory". However, this ICR rates the project as “unsatisfactory,” since no “moderately satisfactory” category exists in the PDS format. The "U" rating has been given for three reasons: First, overall financial management in particular, was weak. Second, the project lacked ownership by the five countries as project implementation was dominated by the leader of the project management and coordination unit (PMCU) based in Uzbekistan; line agencies in the other countries were not properly represented in decision making during project implementation. Third, the project did not achieve the stated objective of reducing withdrawals of water for irrigation by 15% over the project period. This was intended as a target of the overall Aral Sea Basin Program. However, the Water and Environment Management Project documents also show this as a project target. It was unrealistic to state this ambitious goal as the target of a US$20 million project. (p. 2)

The UNDP/GEF-supported International Waters Project (IW-Project) for the Pacific Small Island Developing States inception and development spanned a period of five years. This included the preparation of a Strategic Action Programme (SAP) and the formulation of a project document covering the Oceanic Fisheries Management (OFM) and the Integrated Coastal and Watershed Management (ICWM) components. This Terminal Evaluation is concerned only with the OFM Component/Project which was executed by the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) and the Secretariat for the Pacific Community (SPC) and which targeted the following outcomes: • sustainable ocean fisheries; • improved national and regional management capability; • stock and by-catch monitoring and research; and, • enhanced national and regional management links.

This project has focused on a highly relevant problem: rapid population increase coupled with overexploitation of natural resources and pollution in coastal regions. This set of problems will increase in importance in this region in the future. This evaluation was undertaken by Angel Alcala, Brian Davy and Olof Linden from 03-16 August 1998. The team visited the project sites at Xiamen People’s Republic of China and Batangas Republic of the Philippines. Staff from the Straits of Malacca project visited Manila to brief the evaluation team. Full briefings were given by the PDMO in Manila including provision of all relevant project documents.
