CLME+ Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Experience Note: Applying the Governance Effectiveness Assessment Framework (GEAF) indicators to the CLME+ SAP
The CLME+ SAP specifies the development of a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) plan to track progress towards achieving its objectives, and to facilitate adaptive management. The monitoring aspect of the M&E plan for the CLME+ SAP is based on the Governance Effectiveness Assessment Framework (GEAF) which has been used to develop indicators for monitoring governance within the region. An assessment of these indicators gives insight into needed improvements that can be applied across all categories of the GEAF framework and for the successful implementation of an ecosystem based approach to the sustainable management of the CLME+ region. This experience note highlights the lessons learned from applying the GEAF in the CLME+ region.
