  • Description:
    "The project will enhance the capacity of Sulu Sulawesi Marine Ecoregion (SSME) program and its partners in using the management effectiveness methodology developed by the WCPA-Marine/ WWF International Marine Protected Area (MPA) Management Effectiveness Initiative to a trans-boundary MPA specifically the Philippines and Malaysia Turtle Islands Heritage Protected Area (TIHPA). The project will bring together SSME program staff in the three SSME countries -- Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The project will bring MPA managers and technical staff of the Malaysia and Philippines, as well as the joint management committee of TIHPA to a training-workshop on the methodology developed by the WCPA-Marine/ WWF International MPA Management Effectiveness Initiative. The project will also invite the two MPAs in the SSME, which are pilot sites that have field tested the methodology (Bunaken National Park, and Tubbataha National Park), to share their experience on the application of the methodology. On-site evaluation of the management effectiveness of the Turtle Islands will also be undertaken. The learning gained from this project will feed into the adaptive application of the methodology to MPAs in priority conservation areas (PCA level) in the SSME, which were defined during the SSME Biodiversity Vision development in 2001"--Project summary.
