slide19
MEA FPAs and other stakeholders have yet to be fully oriented on the GEF strategies
  • yet to expand coordination to include more NGOs
  • need to improve the coordination system on project development of the ff. focal area:
    • international waters
    • biosafety; and
    • persistent organic pollutants (POPs)
slide20
limited M&E system and database of GEF projects
  • strong need to link existing monitoring mechanisms of IAs/EAs (i.e. APR/PIR) with the monitoring of GEF-OFP
coping up with challenges and problems
Coping-up with Challenges and Problems
  • coordination mechanism is being institutionalized and strengthened
  • maximize and wise utilization of CSP fund
  • pipeline projects under GEF are being explored to support the ff:
    • capacity building on program strategizing and prioritization
    • database building
  • participate in the training activities sponsored by GEF Secretariat
lessons learned
LESSONS LEARNED
  • continuity of GEF-OFP
  • GEF OFPs and MEA FPAs have to be capacitated at early stage to enable them to deliver the ff :
    • clear and reliable database
    • program and priorities strongly related to national and GEF strategies
    • institutionalized and strong coordination mechanism
    • institutionalized and regular monitoring and evaluation system of GEF projects
future plans and recommendations
FUTURE PLANS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
  • database building will be started
  • systems and procedures for M&E of GEF Philippine projects will be developed
  • coordination mechanism will be institutionalized and strengthened more
  • will focus more on defining specific national priorities vis-à-vis GEF programs and strategies
  • capacity building for GEF OFP and MEA FPAs will be strengthened
  • knowledge and information sharing will be established, (i.e GEF Philippines website)
