  2. 2. Targets need to be based on real interventions and ‘concrete’Targets need to be based on real interventions and ‘concrete’ activities. Some examples….activities. Some examples…. Process IndicatorsProcess Indicators: legislative reform for sustainable fisheries or: legislative reform for sustainable fisheries or water qualitywater quality Stress Reduction IndicatorsStress Reduction Indicators: Sewage treatment systems up and: Sewage treatment systems up and running; Gear changes/modification in fisheriesrunning; Gear changes/modification in fisheries Environment/socioeconomic IndicatorsEnvironment/socioeconomic Indicators: By-catch reduced;: By-catch reduced; catches of threatened species reduced (landingcatches of threatened species reduced (landing figures/observers); nutrient loads down; nutrient –demanding algalfigures/observers); nutrient loads down; nutrient –demanding algal levels downlevels down How to ensure that targets andHow to ensure that targets and indicators are appropriateindicators are appropriate

  4. 4. There are… in terms of the need to focus on transboundaryThere are… in terms of the need to focus on transboundary deliverables at a regional leveldeliverables at a regional level These can be hard to quantify because of the need to show aThese can be hard to quantify because of the need to show a balanced set of deliveries across a number of countries thatbalanced set of deliveries across a number of countries that should represent an equitable regional effortshould represent an equitable regional effort As an example, the ASCLME project is dealing with this problemAs an example, the ASCLME project is dealing with this problem by undertaking a national Marine Ecosystem Diagnostic Analysisby undertaking a national Marine Ecosystem Diagnostic Analysis (MEDA) in each country first….(MEDA) in each country first….
