Title: WP 9: 1st Planning meeting summary


1
WP 9 1st Planning meeting summary
Fundación Malpelo
  • Clarification between WP members of common
    objectives
  • Workshop planning and logistics with time-line
  • Planning for deliverables and publications
  • Next steps

2
Refining objectives
  • 1. Fundamental definitions, concepts and
    development of adaptive management mechanisms for
    marine eco-tourism (criteria).
  • Determine marine tourism activities that favour
    conservation criteria and generate socio-economic
    alternatives.
  • To determine the most appropriate criteria for
    evaluating the effects of marine ecotourism
    practices in reserves (carrying capacity and/or
    LAC)
  • Development and testing of these models with
    appropriately designed and defined indicator
    categories
  • Elaborate and implement efficient,
    cost-effective monitoring and evaluation
    protocols (integrating biophysical,
    socio-economic, user perceptions and governance
    metadata)
  • 2. Explore cost benefit and reciprocation
    mechanisms wrt conservation values - with more
    emphasis upon social and economic
    interdependencies.
  • Develop and evaluate mechanisms to mitigate
    negative impacts, encourage positive impacts and
    examine interdependencies
  • Assess human impacts on biological communities
    at specific case study sites and the implications
    of environmental variability (ENSO, PDO, global
    warming etc) upon sustainable business practices
    in the Equatorial Pacific.
  • 3. Application, outreach and constructing
    sustainable management frameworks

3
Workshop schedule (and agreement in presented
work plan)
  • Workshop 1 CONCEPT AND ORIENTATION CREATING
    ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT MECHANISMS FOR ECOTOURISM
  • (Site TBD Colombia January 2006) Suggestions
  • Planning and discussion forum (a) to share WP
    member and MPA stakeholder experiences (b)
    develop WP strategy, definitions and fundamental
    concepts (i.e. Management model definitions (LAC
    vs. Carrying Capacity)) (c) evaluate existing
    indicators and monitoring methods (d) design
    candidate indicators (transversal and specific
    for WP MPA case studies) (e) design monitoring
    approach/ protocols.
  • Workshop 2 EVALUATION, COST/BENEFIT AND
    RECIPROCATION MECHANISMS TOWARDS CONSERVATION
    VALUES
  • (Galapagos, Ecuador, November 2006) Suggestions
  • Evaluation forum (a) share WP member progress
    and lessons learned, revisit conceptual questions
    to evaluate and modify indicators and monitoring
    methods if necessary, (b) integration of WP
    criteria and data between other INCOFISH WPs
    (1,5,8 etc).
  • Discussion forum (b) cost benefit analysis of
    reciprocation of ecotourism and conservation
    initiatives to ensure sustainable ecosystems,
    coastal marine interactions (c) develop
    strategies to integrate WP recommendations into
    decision making processes within MPAs (eg.
    Participatory forums, conservation initiatives
    within the tourism sector)
  • Discussion forum (d) how might we implement
    long term improvements in sector group
    perceptions w.r.t sustainable activities?
  • Workshop 3 MANAGEMENT PROCESS AND FUTURE STEPS
  • (Machalilla, Ecuador Sept 2007) Suggestions
  • Plenary (a) integrating technical
    recommendations into management processes (b)
    summary of WP advances (c) strategies to develop
    WP objectives beyond the life of the project
  • Work groups (c) continuation of publications and
    diffusion of project results

4
Planning for deliverables and publications
Suggested Topics
  • Concept MS with global perspective and summaries/
    comparisons between case reserves.
  • Participatory processes for developing indicators
    with stakeholders.
  • User perceptions and socio-economic
    considerations
  • Outreach materials for Reserve managers and local
    communities etc.

WP 9 Work Plan
Project task Months
Start-up, Creation of a shared literature base historical data and literature review between WP members, Presentation of WP goals with local MPA administrators and stakeholders. 3 - 7
Workshop 1 (Site TBD, Colombia) January 2006) CONCEPT AND ORIENTATION CREATING ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT MECHANISMS FOR ECOTOURISM 9
Further integration of work package goals with local MPA administrators and stakeholders (strengthened links) local workshop sessions. Construct and maintain a web based Ecotourism discussion and feedback group through portal? Biophysical, socio-economic, user perception and governance data collection with MPA counterparts Data reduction and creation of local and WP data to WP1 Analysis first evaluation of marine ecotourism indicators for MPAs and monitoring methods 9 -18
Workshop 2 (Galapagos, Ecuador, November 2006). EVALUATION, COST/BENEFIT AND RECIPROCATION MECHANISMS TOWARDS CONSERVATION VALUES 18
Continued indicator data collection and assimilation. Identify, explore and where feasible apply, incentives and mechanisms to improve the contributions of tourism operations towards reciprocal sustainable ecotourism and conservation. On basis of indicator outputs design decision making tools for application by Marine Reserve Managers (interpretation) 18 - 29
Workshop 3 (Machalilla, Ecuador) Sept 2007) MANAGEMENT PROCESS AND FUTURE STEPS 29
Final dissemination of results to stakeholders, park administrators and academic community 30 - 33

WP 9 Deliverables
D9.1 Month 10 DEFINITIONS AND CRITERIA to determine the most appropriate management models and scope of ecotourism (Carrying capacity vs. LAC/VIM) for ecotourism in the 4 MPAs under study with global review of ecotourism activities outside of Equ. Pacific
D9.2 Month 25 INDICATORS, STANDARDS AND THRESHOLD VALUES used to monitor impact of ecotourism on selected MPAs
D9.3 Month 30 A RANGE OF ADEQUATE MANAGEMENT RESPONSES application and evaluation of ecotourism concepts, standards and indicators between WPs and MPA stakeholders and managers (focus)
D9.4 Transv. with deadline schedule SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS AND DISSEMINATION TO STAKEHOLDER GROUPS Dissemination of results to stakeholders, park administrators and academic community. At least 5 publications submitted between WP members

    WP 8 member, process facilitators, local
    government etc.)
  • Galapagos Marine Reserve (Ecuador)
  • Machalilla National Park (Ecuador)

Next steps and synergies.
  • First meeting to explore the relative methods
    (LAC criteria etc) is tonight.
  • First approach to stakeholders and managers upon
    return to host countries
  • Still need to meet with WP 8 involvement in the
    second workshop more emphasis on socio-economic
    issues?
  • Possible synergy with WP 6 development of
    decision making tools
