Countries: FIJI

No cost-extension:Provide a no-cost extension of the project to allow for more substantive achievement of project outcomes.


Strategic Results Framework:Make Strategic Results Framework (SRF)indicators more relevant and measurable with the context and time period of the projec


Technical Support and Staffing:strengthen project capacities to provide technical support, oversight, capacity building and implementation support to the communities in the 3 pilot islands


Fund flows:While fund flows have Improved substantially in recent months, ensure submission of timely and complete work planning, reimbursement requests, financial and expenditure reporting



Monitoring and evaluation:Improve project level monitoring and evaluation with development of a robust M&E plan that will enable the assessment of progress towards achievement of project impacts


6. Communications:Improve communication between PMU and project staff in the islands


7. Training and Capacity Building:Improve staff and stakeholder training and capacity building


Stakeholder Engagement: Improve stakeholder engagement. A strong public campaign, initially on the pilot islands should be initiated relating to protection of marine resources, protection of  atural resources, improving cropping systems to address food security and management of community resources


9. Reporting:Reporting between PMU and project partners and between PMU and Island administrations needs substantial improvement


Sustainability:Hire a short-term international consultant to review already undertaken activities and develop a plan for ensuring financial, institutional, and technical feasibility of project investment for the post-project period.


11. Asset Management:Improving assets and asset management.


12. Vulnerability Assessment:Complete vulnerability assessment as a priority


13. Integrated Resource Planning:Since the ISPs are focused at strategies to address a range of land and sea based activities at the individual atoll/level, these can serve as a good starting point for developing fully integrated village-level or atoll level resource management plans that recognize the inter-connectivity between the marine and terrestrial environments and hence avoid fragmentation in project focus. Use the vulnerability assessments to define activities, investments and outcomes from the village-level or atoll level resource management plans.


 Establishment of MPAs and Open Access Management:Ensuring managed open access regimes. This would require fast-tracking by-laws, the organization and strengthening of community institutions to promote active community participation in setting up and managing MPAs, facilitating zoning and monitoring, monitoring implementation of fisheries regulations and by-laws.


15. Planting Materials: Timely availability of planting materials and tools for villagers.



Demonstration Plots: Setting up demonstration plots within the pilot villages to demonstrate best practices in food production, sustainable land and agricultural practices, home gardens, animal husbandry, nursery management, compost making, etc.
