Focal Points and a second representative, appointed by Fisheries Administrations and Regional Fisheries Bodies from the ACP countries were invited to participate in the activities. This series of Workshops were made up of three parts:

  • Programme Monitoring Workshop (1½ days)
  • ACP Fish II Network Meeting : conference and reception with regional and  local stakeholders
  • Training in project devising, concepts and tools, project cycle management and terms of reference drafting  (2½ days)

 FOCAL POINTS MONITOR PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION

As key partners at all stages in programme implementation, Focal Points from national and regional bodies joined together with Programme staff in reviewing progress in achieving agreed objectives. With over 39 fisheries-related projects completed during PE 1, the Workshops provided not only an opportunity to examine experiences in assignment planning and implementation but also to assess the potential for future positive changes as a result of the targeted interventions and agree on next steps . More specifically Workshop objectives are:

  • To share experiences and learn lessons on projects implemented to-date to improve future project implementation;
  • To review the overall Programme implementation plan; and
  • To finalise any outstanding project descriptions for implementation in PE 2.

BUILDING FOCAL POINTS CAPACITY

Following the monitoring activity and with the objective of building Focal Points capacity, the training on the Preparation of Terms of Reference within the EDF Project Cycle started. The training consisted of sessions on the logical framework approach and Terms of reference (with specific reference to ACP FISH II ToRs) followed by practical training sessions through working groups.
