Recommendations
1 Please consolidate channels of impact on public policies and improve in public officials from all jurisdictions the knowledge and skills of management on the CMPAs and install measuring effectiveness and impact in the areas of decision making; so that the installed capacity in technical levels extends to policy makers.
2 Analyze in depth the CMPAs financing strategy, since you must still mature to ensure their sustainability, at least in the selected pilot areas, some of which have no chance of sustaining only with tourism.
3 Please review the pilot experience, and include at least one CMPAs by province, as a demonstration effect to ensure the sustainability of the initiative.
4 Technical assistance to provinces and municipalities on issues considered key to the CMPAs is crucial, since the availability of technical resources is not equal at all points of the project. You should keep this activity.
5 There are different levels of involvement by stakeholders that shall constitute the agency. In the provinces where there is no creation of CMPAs as part of the pilot project the level of understanding of the toolkit proposed by the project is less. Although it is not the sole responsibility of the project, work on it in this second stage remains still, in order to achieve this product and its sustainability in the future.

The Project will evaluate the different advances at provincial and national level; including seeking support from legislators (taking advantage of the support achieved by the project for the creation of the "Namuncurá - Banco Burdwood? Marine Protected Area at 2013). A document analyzing the possible profile for the Agency and the strategies for its creation is now available (2013). This will be presented in each province, and is expected to get the approval of the initiative at the next meeting of the Project Steering Committee.
