  1. 1. 1 III UNESCO-GEF IW:LEARN Groundwater integration Dialogue “Managing Groundwater in Coastal Areas and SIDS” Large Marine Ecosystems: Community of Practices Alejandro Iglesias-Campos 7 May 2014 – Athens, GR
  2. 2. Large Marine Ecosystems http://www.unesco.org/new/twap-lme
  3. 3. IOC Assembly Decision 5.4.4 • Welcomes the proposal to develop and implement a new GEF project on Strengthening Global Governance of Large Marine Ecosystems (LME) and their Coasts; • Supports the role of the Commission in leading the implementation of the project and in hosting a Project Coordination Unit at its headquarters; • Requests the Executive Secretary to mobilise extra- budgetary resources to support the position of project coordinator as well as the operations of the Project Coordination Unit; • Invites Member States and donor agencies to support through extra-budgetary resources 3
  4. 4. Project objective • To improve global ecosystem-based governance of Large Marine Ecosystems and their coasts by generating knowledge, building capacity, harnessing public and private partners, and supporting south-to-south learning and north-to- south learning. 4
  5. 5. 1. Global and regional network of partners to enhance EBM to support GEF/LME/ICAM/MSP/MPA projects • Enhanced network of partners working together in GEF- LME/ICM/MPA projects. • Increased interaction between GEF- LME, MPA and ICM projects and other marine and coastal initiatives supported by GEF and partner organizations. • Increased collaboration and coordination between GEF- LME, ICM and MPA projects and partners, within the geographic boundaries of LMEs. • Progress towards fully integrated ‘ridge to reef’ ecosystem-based management of freshwater and marine transboundary water systems, 5
  6. 6. 1. Global and regional network of partners to enhance EBM to support GEF/LME/ICAM/MSP/MPA projects • Outputs: 1. COP established 2. Steering Committee functioning 3. Technical Working Groups organised 4. Regional LME networks established 6
  7. 7. 2. Best LME Governance practices • GEF LME/ICM/MPA projects equipped with new tools that incorporate ICM, MPAs and climate variability and change. • Innovative approaches captured and available for use by GEF projects • Facilitate the exchange of experiences between LME’s on data and information management 7
  8. 8. 2. Best LME Governance practices • Outputs: 1. Series of validated methods and new tools to address priority transboundary issues and national governance reforms 2. An LME/ICM/MPA Toolkit for adaptive ecosystem-based governance 3. Codification of experiences and best practices from GEF LME/ICM/MPA projects 4. Establishment of an "LME/ IW environmental data management committee". 8
  9. 9. 3. Capacity development, twinning and learning exchanges • Increased collaboration and learning with non-GEF marine and coastal initiatives (e.g. Seascapes) • GEF LME/ICM/MPA practitioners trained in new techniques and approaches for ecosystem-based 5- modular assessment • Increased capacity of GEF LME, ICM and MPA project staff and practitioners, to address the new ecosystem-based governance priorities in GEF6 9
  10. 10. 3. Capacity development, twinning and learning exchanges • Outputs: 1. Functional dialogue, project twinning, learning exchanges, and training workshops 2. GEF LME/ICM/MPA practitioners fully trained 3. New training materials developed (with partners) 10
  11. 11. 4. Communication, dissemination and outreach • Communication of results to stakeholders, increased awareness of LME issues and engagement in networks through global and regional LME /COPs • Strategy developed for showcasing LME and ICM assessment and governance best practices among project stakeholders. • Global policy discussions informed and impacted LME/ICM/MPA governance project. 11
  12. 12. 4. Communication, dissemination and outreach • Outputs: 1. Global LME/ICM/MPA- communication platform 2. Lessons from GEF ecosystem-based LME/ICM/MPA projects disseminated through IW:LEARN website, and other IW:learn related activities 3. Publication of findings from LME/ICM/MPA projects in peer-reviewed journals 4. Participation of GEF ecosystem-based LME/ICM/MPA project staff and practitioners in regional and global conferences 12
