FileTerminal Evaluation Report for the UNDP GEF Project Development and adoption of a Strategic Action Programme for balancing water uses and sustainable natural resource management in the OrangeSenqu River transboundary basin by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Mar 06, 2015 01:03
Despite considerable challenges and constraints that could not have been foreseen during project Development, the Project has delivered high quality products and has engendered strong ownership at many stakeholder levels, from village communities to senior political figures. The latter has been manifested by the SAP endorsement by the Conference of Ministers of the ORASECOM on 7 August 2014. As a consequence, and not withstanding these constraints and challenges, the Project has received a Terminal Evaluation Rating of 6 (Highly Satisfactory). The project has delivered 1. A high quality TDA, 2. An equally high quality SAP endorsed by the ministers, accompanied with NAPs, and 3. Successfully implemented SAP demonstration projects on the ground. This is an International Waters foundation project that has been undertaken under a fairly limited 4-year window and with a fairly constrained budget. As such it must be considered to have been highly satisfactory in its delivery despite any overarching constraints that could have impacted on the final objectives. It has delivered everything it was designed to deliver and more besides, including a clear and obvious level of political commitment and ownership. On this basis the Terminal Evaluator’s primary recommendation would be for UNDP to seek further support and investment from GEF to implement the Strategic Action Programme in close collaboration with ORASECOM and its partners.
FileBCLME SAP-IMP MidTerm Evaluation Report by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Feb 12, 2015 12:42
The purpose of the Mid-Term Evaluation (MTE) has been to examine the progress and performance of the project since the start of its implementation. The MTE includes the evaluation of both the progress in project implementation, measured against planned outputs and outcomes set forth in the Project Document, and the assessment of features related to the process involved in achieving those outcomes, and the progress towards project objective. The evaluation also identifies and addresses causes and issues that constrain the achievement of set targets. This Mid-term Evaluation has been conducted in a participatory manner consistent with its essential objective to assess the project implementation and impacts in order to provide a basis for improvement in implementation over the remaining time of the project, and other decisions.
FileGovernance baselines as a basis for adaptive marine spatial planning by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Feb 12, 2015 12:35
A marine spatial planning (MSP) initiative—if to be successful—has to be rooted in a thorough understanding of the tradition and structures of the governance system in the area targeted for the initiative. After decades of a mainly sectoral approach towards maritime affairs, governments began to recognized the need for a governance framework that applies a more integrated approach to maritime policy. The new Integrated Maritime Policy of the European Union is only one example for such a changed way of policy and decision making. The assembly of a governance baseline can help to identify the crucial hindering and success factors for the implementation of MSP.

World Ocean Summit 2015 from Jun 03, 2015 08:00 to Jun 05, 2015 06:00 Lisbon, Portugal, by Montakan Chimmuang
The Economist Events' World Ocean Summit has become a leading forum addressing the development of the ocean economy. The third event builds on the success of the first two in setting a new global agenda for the blue economy. The theme—”Blue economy; blue growth”—is designed to capture the opportunity presented by blue growth for businesses, governments and the international ocean community, and identify solutions in the tension between economic development and sustainability. High-level, outcomes-focused discussion with a global faculty of speakers, powerful case studies and a networking opportunity bar none are the hallmarks of the World Ocean Summit.
