Abstract:
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) developed an evaluation tool for marine protected areas management effectiveness (MPAME) and has begun to implement it in all Micronesia Challenge jurisdictions. The tool has been implemented in Palau, Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae, and Republic of the Marshall Islands. Rare Campaign Coordinators in CNMI and Guam have also been trained in its use. TNC has been in the process of developing an extension of the MPAME tool to measure conservation benefits, and tested it in CNMI. On December 1, 2015 partners from CNMI government agencies, NGOs, and community members gathered to review the draft conservation benefits tool provided by The Nature Conservancy. The focus group was an opportunity to bring together different perspectives and insight to critique the existing tool and provide suggestions on how to strengthen it"--Page 2.
