Mid-term review report of the Community Based Fisheries Management Phase 2 and management response

Summary of publication

This mid-term review report of the Community Based Fisheries Management Phase 2 ($A8 million, 2017-21, including $A2 million of co-funding from ACIAR) assessed progress, identified key strengths and weaknesses, made recommendations to enhance implementation and effectiveness, and informed DFAT’s future support for community based fisheries management in the Pacific.

The project was evaluated against objectives, expected outcomes, activities and methodologies with the overall aim of the project to improve food and nutrition security, productivity and resilience of fisheries systems and community livelihoods in the Pacific.

DFAT is of the view that the evaluation provides a sound evidence base for the Australian Government to consider continuation of Australian development assistance to community based fisheries management support in the Pacific. The evaluation identifies important success factors to carry through into a possible new phase of support. The evaluation is a useful articulation of opportunities to improve what the project is and suggested changes and enhancements are underway.

The management response outlines planned actions by DFAT and partners in response to the independent mid-term review recommendations.
