A similar exercise was carried in early 2013 out in connection with focus on other PA managing institutions, namely Seychelles National Parks Authority (SNPA) and Island Conservation Society (ICS), as well as the UNDP-GEF Program Coordination Unit (PCU). Results were averaged and are as follows: Systemic 18/30 = 60% Institutional 30/45 = 67% Individual 10/21 = 48% See complete results here: [ 2_18600/PIMS%204529_Technical %20Reports_Seychelles%20Outer %20Islands_290813.pdf] There is need to carry out the exercise on targeting the entities directly involved in PA management and benefitting from the project, namely (1) Nature Seychelles (NS); (2) Marine Conservation Society of Seychelles (MCSS); (3) Seychelles Islands Foundation (SIF); and (4) Green Islands Foundation (GIF). Agree METT scores: Cousin Island Special Reserve Aldabra 78% 62% 51% 74% 80% 66% 60% 78% METT applied at Mid-Term and Final Evaluation No measurements for this indicator, as there was no new application of this scorecard/tool in the first year of project implementation. The periodicity of the application Steady progress towards achieving the overall target (achieved for Aldabra and North and approaching for Cousin and Denis). Midterm METT in draft has been produced in April 2013. The scorings were reviewed by the RTA. These are the preliminary results, which Agree 50 | P a g e
Indicator Baseli ne Target/s (End of Project) Source of verification Level at 30 June 2012 Level at Mid-Term October 2013 Comments Special Reserve North Island Denis Island of this tool is: baseline (when the project is submitted for CEO Endorsement), mid- term and end. The two latter are supposed to coincide with the MTR and TE, so that the application and results of the tool can be scrutinized by an independent evaluator. Furthermore, project activities are only in its first year of implementation and a lot of the indicators required to carry out the METT are yet to be measured or are measured on an interval basis, hence need more data to support the scores. still need to be validated by the MTR consultant:  Cousin Island Special Reserve: 76 / 102 = 75%  Aldabra Atoll Special Reserve: 75 / 102 = 74%  North Island: 70 / 102 = 69%  Denis Island: 67 / 102 = 66% Coverage (ha) of formal protected area system Marine Terrestrial 29,836 ha 24,978 ha >37,500h a ~26,000h a change to 23, 000 at MTE Protected Area Information Management System There is no progress so far towards the indicator. The last gazettal of PAs to happen in Seychelles was that of terrestrial part of Silhouette and the numbers have already taken this into considerations in the baseline (cross- checking with SNPA). Silhouette island counted already with a marine park with > 3,000ha, In 2010, 93% of Silhouette Island’s terrestrial area was declared a national park and under the management of Island Conservation Society. Baseline studies for the current and potential new terrestrial and marine PAs have only just begun; as project progresses, this target will be clearly visible.
