Integrated Coastal and Mangrove Forest Protection in the Mekong Provinces for the Adaptation to Climate Change (ICMP): Summary report of final evaluation and management response
Summary of publication
The Integrated Coastal Management Program (ICMP), (2011-2018) supports the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) and Provincial People's Committees utilise their strengthened planning, technical and financial capacities to foster climate-resilient development of the Mekong Delta. ICMP is jointly financed by Goverments of Australia and Germany and implemented by GIZ under delegated cooperation arrangement with DFAT.
This evaluation was conducted in Vietnam from 10th to 24th January 2017 by a team consisting of staff from GIZ and DFAT as well as independent consultants. Findings from the evaluation will be taken into account in the design of a new investment under the working title "Mekong Delta Climate Resilience Initiative" (MECRI) as follow up program to ICMP after 2018. DFAT is still considering whether to invest in this program. In line with DFAT's Aid Evaluation Policy, a management response to the evaluation's recommendations was prepared.
