Questions from organizers• How much (number) has MSP enhanced the conservation of critical areas/species in your offshore waters?• Is there any indication that the identified environmental goals are being achieved?• How are these environmental goals connected to the societal outcomes and their success in being sustained over a long-term period?
  19. 19. Questions from organizers• How much (number) has MSP enhanced the conservation of critical areas/species in your offshore waters?• Is there any indication that the identified environmental goals are being achieved?• How are these environmental goals connected to the societal outcomes and their success in being sustained over a long-term period?• How have you incorporated monitoring and evaluation to determine if you have achieved your env. goals? How much does this cost (dollars and level of effort)?
  20. 20. Closing thoughts• How should we be measuring results?• Important to capture both process and outcomes• Do we need a new framework for measuring results?
