Final Programmatic Report, 6/1/2012 - 12/31/2013
"Strengthen law enforcement institutions supporting coral reef conservation in three Micronesian nations: Palau, the Federal States of Micronesia, and the Marshall Islands. From June 2012 until December 2013, project activities were undertaken within three Micronesian Jurisdictions (Palau, Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands) to support on-going conservation enforcement capacity-building activities within the region. The project provided follow-on training and capacity building to conservation law enforcement departments or management programs across the region. Key accomplishments include: strengthening of conservation law enforcement networks; development of standard operating procedures and compliance and enforcement plans for programs; highlighting of shark awareness, conservation and enforcement issues; improvement of communication with remote coral reef atoll locations; and capacity building through targeted training, sitevisits, and skill and lesson sharing. All activities were coordinated with NOAAs Pacific Island Managed and Protected Area Community (PIMPAC) and implementing NGO or government agency partners in support of the Micronesia Challenge conservation goals."
