Overview

The project will work around three themes that will directly address problems of coastal communities:
a) Reversing degradation of coastal resources,
b) Enhancing livelihoods of coastal people; and
c)Capacity building and information/data base management.

To be able to do this the proposed action will have eight specific components directly addressing the three themes indicated above namely:
1: Understanding material transfers from watersheds and reducing ‘downstream’ effects of agriculture and forestry on coastal aquatic ecosystems
2: Addressing non-optimal use of resources through valuation and “environmental payments”
3: Identifying, mapping and strengthening management of critical coastal habitats
4: Understanding the factors determining livelihoods for poor coastal people and facilitate the application of ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF)
5: Restoring production from capture fisheries
6: Developing technologies for alternative or supplementary livelihoods for coastal people
7: Resource mapping (Biodiversity Information System) for effective resource management and monitoring
8: Capacity Building in Biodiversity Conservation and Natural Resources Management

    Do we have a results matrix so that we can determine the outcomes of the project at the end of 2016 or five years from now?
