Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 1. It is important that the projects that underpin marine and coastal protected areas systems incorporate mechanisms for the achieving financial sustainability. However, since the issue is complex and highly specialized, it is recommended that in the design of these projects, gradual approaches should be considered, with a first stage aimed at creating of awareness and human and building social capital building (what this was accomplished in the present project), followed by a stage of final design and implementation of specific financing mechanisms. The financial sustainability of protected areas is complex and should be dealt with as a project by itself. 2. It is convenient to assign the role of executing agency to an NGO, but it is recommended that this entity haves the disposition to serve to key stakeholders and facilitate the construction of social capital, without seeking it?s a leading role or the replacement of social subjects.
2 3. It is highly recommended that the projects include actions to build or increase the social capital and human capital. Despite the changes that may be on the occur among officials and people among that hold positions in the various management entities, these capitals are of high value and contribute, in the medium and long term, to create impacts and support processes.

Management Response: [Added: 2015/07/02]

In response to these two recommendations, it is agreed that this is a key issue that because of the difficulties involved requires a gradual approach. We also agree on the convenience of having an NGO take on the role of executing agency. The first stage of awareness and building human and social capital was successfully accomplished by the project. The final design and implementation of financial sustainability mechanisms specific for the protected areas system should build on the above and become the prime objective of a new project.

2. Recommendation: 3. It is highly recommended that the projects include actions to build or increase the social capital and human capital. Despite the changes that may be on the occur among officials and people among that hold positions in the various management entities, these capitals are of high value and contribute, in the medium and long term, to create impacts and support processes.
