Key activities
1. Priority coastal ecosystems that require rehabilitation and conservation are identified, based on ecological and socio-economic importance, suitability and needs. 1.1 Practical and policy-relevant information made available on ecological, livelihood and institutional status, vulnerability, threats and needs for rehabilitation/conservation in at least two coastal stretches in two tsunami-affected countries of the Indian Ocean 1.1.1 Assessment of ecological, socio-economic and institutional status, vulnerability, threats and needs
1.1.2 Production of land use-zone based GIS maps and other decision-support tools summarising assessment findings
1.2 Priority sites and methods for coastal ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation identified in two tsunami-affected countries of the Indian Ocean 1.2.1 Facilitation of pilot site selection through multi-stakeholder dialogue and negotiation
1.2.2 Technical, economic and institutional appraisal of rehabilitation investment options
1.2.3 Approval of investment plans for ecosystem rehabilitation
2. Coastal ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation measures are undertaken in pilot sites, using ecologically and socio-economically sound approaches. 2.1 Coastal ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation plans produced in partnership with local stakeholders at pilot sites, as part of integrated land-use plans 2.1.1 Develop site ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation plans as part of integrated land use planning
2.2 Effective institutional arrangements in place in pilot sites to facilitate participatory mechanisms for the implementation of coastal ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation activities through stakeholder partnerships 2.2.1 Stakeholder and institutional mapping to identify mechanisms and arrangements for implementing rehabilitation and conservation plans
2.2.2 Establish contracts to undertake rehabilitation and conservation activities
2.3 Rehabilitation and conservation of degraded and threatened coastal ecosystems in pilot sites 2.3.1 Implement ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation plans
3. The long-term sustainability of coastal ecosystem rehabilitation in pilot sites is strengthened through local benefit-sharing and financing mechanisms. 3.1 Methods and information made available on needs and opportunities for local benefit-sharing and financing mechanisms for coastal ecosystem rehabilitation and conservation in pilot sites 3.1.1 Assess needs and opportunities for local benefit-sharing and sustainable financing
4. The project is managed and operating successfully. 4.1 Project management, reporting and implementation structures in place and functioning 4.1.1 Establish and maintain project management and technical support unit
4.1.2 Project work planning, reporting and monitoring
