    Capacity assessment methodology
  • Description:
    "Over the past three years, the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) has completed a se-ries of steps to define what needs to be done at the national and jurisdictional levels to conserve coral reefs in the United States flagged jurisdictions (hereafter jurisdictions). The results of these processes are clearly described in the NOAA CRCP National Goals and Objectives document and the Coral Reef Management Priority documents (hereafter priority setting documents) for each of the seven jurisdictions with coral reefs (American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Florida, Guam, Hawai`i, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands). However, despite understanding what should be done, staff from the CRCP national and jurisdictional offices as well as Points of Con-tact (POCs) from the jurisdictions have expressed concern that the capacity to implement the necessary steps identified in these documents is variable across the jurisdictions and, in many cases, is insufficient. Because of this, CRCP has decided to follow the priority setting process with a coral reef management capacity assessment performed by an external consultant team led by SustainaMetrix. This document is intended to serve as a methodological guide for the consultant team to develop and implement methods that are customized to the unique context, scale and timing of the coral reef management capacity assessment in each of the seven jurisdictions"--Background.
