1. Introduction. Heavy fishing pressure is one of the main drivers of coral reef health decline in many small island states,.In recognition of the impacts of unsustainable fishing on marine ecosystems and the social implications of these impacts, there have been many calls to include ecosystem considerations in fisheries management decisions, giving rise to terms such as an Ecosystem Cited by: 4. The collection of case studies sets the platform for an interactive dialogue space for researchers, policy makers, civil society and small-scale fishing communities to start the conversation about the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the SSF Guidelines at local, national, regional and global : Hardcover. This e-Course aims to provide a practical overview, from an operational perspective, of the core principles, elements and enabling environment for integrating gender into climate smart agriculture, as well as showcasing relevant tools and examples related to gender, climate change and agriculture.

Monitoring and evaluation can sometimes seem like an unaffordable luxury, an administrative burden, or an unwelcome instrument of external oversight. But if used well, M&E can become a powerful tool for social and political change.

The MSC monitoring and evaluation program works to understand the environmental and social impacts of the MSC. It also provides the scientific foundation for a consistent, research-based program.

Good monitoring and evaluation is needed to verify whether our program is delivering the impacts promised by the MSC label. Monitoring: High-quality monitoring of information encourages timely decision-making, ensures project accountability, and provides a robust foundation for evaluation and learning.

It is through the continuous monitoring of project performance that you have an opportunity to learn about what is working well and what challenges are arising. The vision for small-scale fisheries is couched in human and development terms.

The means to address the vision therefore lie strongly in the (i) strengthening of the profile of the sub-sector and protection of the current assets of small-scale fisheries, (ii) establishing their appropriate placement vis-à-vis fisheries as a whole, and (iii) establishing small-scale fisheries within other.

Why you need to design a monitoring and evaluation system A systematic approach to designing a monitoring and evaluation system enables your team to: • Define the desired impact of the research team’s stakeholder engagement activities on the clinical trial agenda. • Justify the need and budget for these stakeholder engagement activities.

Project design inappropriate to local conditions, needs and capacities. Underestimation of resource needs, amortization obligations, insufficient allowance for resource demands of other on-going projects, leading to heavy additional unplanned borrowing.

Such design, monitoring and evaluation services are typically conducted against a set of criteria (efficiency/value for money, effectiveness, coherence, relevance, and sustainability). Evaluation methodologies may include counter-factual assessments or use a.

Chapter 5. MONITORING AND EVALUATION 1. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) are integral and individually distinct parts of programme preparation and implementation. They are critical tools for forward-looking strategic positioning, organisational learning and for sound management.

It provides a critical analysis of strengthens and weakness of the M&E processes, lessons learned, and guiding principles.

In early the program will open for applications from small-scale fisheries. Currently six fisheries engaged in the MSC Fish for Good project are in the pilot program. To enter, fisheries must be committed to achieving MSC certification and plan on entering full assessment after completing the ITM period which should not exceed five years.

Impact evaluation assesses the changes that can be attributed to a particular intervention, such as a project, program or policy, both the intended ones, as well as ideally the unintended ones.

In contrast to outcome monitoring, which examines whether targets have been achieved, impact evaluation is structured to answer the question: how would outcomes such as participants' well-being have.

Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation This annual report monitors and evaluates agricultural policies spanning all 6 continents, including the 36 OECD countries, the 5 non-OECD EU Member States, and 12 emerging economies.

In the development projects, monitoring and evaluation play diverse roles, in the sense that monitoring is an ongoing process, whereas evaluation is performed periodically. Further, the focus of the assessment also differentiates the two, i.e. monitoring is all about what is happening, evaluation is concerned with how well it happened.

of a monitoring and evaluation framework for policy research projects and programmes. intended users The primary audience for this guidance note is people designing and managing monitoring and evaluation. However, it will be a useful tool for anyone involved in monitoring and evaluation.

An impact evaluation provides information about the impacts produced by an intervention - positive and negative, intended and unintended, direct and indirect. This means that an impact evaluation must establish what has been the cause of observed changes (in this case ‘impacts’) referred to as causal attribution (also referred to as causal inference).
