Abstract:
"Support a growing network of locally managed marine protected areas. Project will strengthen capacity-building and socioeconomic monitoring. Indonesia Locally Managed Marine Areas Foundation (ILMMA) has successfully achieved the intended outcomes of this project and significantly advanced coral reef conservation in our project sites. We undertook training on climate change outreach, participatory vulnerability assessment, and adaptation planning using materials adapted from those developed by the Micronesian Conservation Trust and U.S. CTI. We also undertook training in socio-economic monitoring using the SocMon and SEM-Pasifika approaches. These training included all ILMMA technical staff, Focal Area Coordinators, Village Coordinators, as well as guests from TNC, CI, the Coral Triangle Support Program, the Indonesia Marine and Climate Support Project, and the Coral Triangle Center. Since the training, five sites have completed management plans that include newly identified activities to enhance climate change adaptation. For example, in the Padaido Islands communities have identified the importance of designing resilient networks of the Locally-Managed Marine Area Network (LMMAs) to support climate change adaptation. The development of this network will be carried out in late 2012 and 2013 under a second NFWF grant. We have reviewed and updated our 2010 socio-economic monitoring and undertaken baseline socio-economic surveys with new communities. We continued training and mentoring existing sites in key LMMA skills and new LMMA communities received training and mentoring in developing LMMAs. Each of our partner communities has advanced their LMMA skills and LMMA management."
