Recommendations
1 Sit down and address the institutional problem that currently characterizes the existing set-up and then identify and discuss the possible common agenda for the multi-lateral environmental agreements (MEAs).
2 Extend the Project to allow the production of tools and improve web portal content.
3 Consider a STREEM 2nd Phase but focus on MEA integration in local development plans of more sites. Choose sites where MEA issues/concerns are more pronounced (e.g. Occidental Mindoro, Mt. Kanla-on, Central Cebu, Samar-Leyte provinces) and attempt higher levels of local integration (i.e., provincial and city/municipal).
4 Engage more CSOs.
5 Exert more conscious effort at identifying the gender components of the project.

The Project Coordinating Team (PCT) took note of the recommendation. The reactivation of the CCMRD as the National Technical Coordinating Committee for the three Rio Convention is a means to achieve institutional/interagency coordination between and among the MEAs. The only concern is how the CCMRD Secretariat mobilizes the P1.0M allocation per year from the DENR budget for CCMRD meetings. These meetings will serve as a clearing mechanism in putting forward the country?s positions during the Conference of Parties (COP) of the three Rio Conventions. This will be discussed further in series of meetings to be conducted by the PCT.

The PCT took note of the recommendation. This will be discussed further with the STREEM Technical Working Group and to look into the possible inclusion of the STREEM Phase 2 under the GEF 6 strategic objectives. As suggested, a more politically complex sites will be considered to determine the cost-effectiveness of mainstreaming MEAS at the various levels.
