1 GEF Programmatic Approach: The Coral Triangle Initiative Presentation by: David S. McCauley, ADB GEF Facilitator Sub-regional Workshop for GEF Focal Points in Asia 15-16 May 2008

2 Outline of Presentation Overview of GEF Programmatic Approach Examples of GEF’s Use of the Approach The Coral Triangle Coral Triangle Initiative SE Asia ADB/GEF CTI Subproject Pacific ADB/GEF CTI Subproject CTI Programming

3 The GEF Programmatic Approach Main Rules Council reviews/approves “Program Framework Document” (PFD) covering objectives and scope Funding time frame must be given, and cannot exceed replenishment period, though vision may extend beyond A resource envelope for the program is approved, but financial commitment still through individual PIFs Any or all PIFs under the program may be simultaneously presented and approved with the PFD PIFs not submitted with PFD must be approved by Council within 1 year thereafter MSPs can be brought to CEO only after PFD is approved Types of Programs National – Single and Multi-Focal Area Regional/Global – Single and Multi-focal Area

5 A GEF Programmatic Approach Case Study

6 ADB/GEF Southeast Asian Subproject ADB/GEFPacific Subproject ADB/GEF Subprojects Already Identified

7 The Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI) and the GEF Pacific Alliance for Sustainability (PAS): Geographic Program Areas GEF-PAS CTI ADB/GEF CTI-Pacific

8 Coral Triangle Initiative: GEF Program Activities Defined in PIFs for Council Coordination/support (ADB): CTI in IW:Learn Fisheries (UNDP/FAO): SCS, ATSEA, WPEAOF Integrated efforts (ADB): Southeast Asia; Pacific (PAS) Activities Described in Short Concept Papers Ridge to reef management in Philippines (ADB) Community protected areas management (WB/ADB) ACT – CTI Climate change adaptation (ADB/UNDP) Bycatch management (FAO)

9 GEF CTI Rational and Elements: Coastal & Marine Resources Mgt. Rationale Socio-economics: Fisheries, tourism, livelihoods, culture Degradation: Obvious and accellerating loss of resources Approach: Needs long-term/systematic effort, high resources Regional: Some issues need cooperation to address Global: Many benefits – opportunity to tap external financing Key Elements Countries (6): Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Malaysia, Solomons, Timor Leste + Pacific sphere of influence Content: Economic base (fisheries, tourism, food security), seascapes management, including protected areas Partners: ADB & GEF (2), US & Australia (2), CI, TNC, WWF (3) ADB, GEF & CTI: Development & environmental partner, financing facilitator & lead GEF agency

10 CTI Development and the GEF Programming Cycle Dec 2007: SOM-1 – CTI agenda & commitments Jan-Feb 2008: Program and project concepts developed March 2008: Concepts approved by GEF Secretariat April 2008: Program & PIFs presented to GEF Council May 2008-April 2009: Subprojects preparation June 2008: SOM-2 – CTI Action Plan March 2009: Subprojects for GEF CEO endorsement May 2009: Subprojects endorsed by GEF CEO (CTI Summit) June 2009-April 2013: Program/subproject implementation July 2010-Dec 2010: GEF-5 CTI design November 2011: Target date for start of GEF-5 CTI

11 Coral Triangle Initiative: ADB/GEF Pacific Subproject Elements Marine Protected/Managed Areas: Policies and institutions, sustainable financing, review of formal and informal marine protected areas networks, pilot activities to demonstrate best practices or fill gaps in existing management systems Ridge to Reef Management to Protect Coastal and Marine Ecosystems: Assessment and action to identify and respond to threats from land-based pollution and other causes of stress for coastal and marine resources Climate Change Adaptation: Increasing the resilience of risheries, coastal and marine resource systems and marine protected areas Project Management: Coordination, Harmonization and Project Management

12 Example - Pacific Countries: GEF-PAS and ADB/GEF Coral Triangle Initiative Subproject Project vehicle: ADB/GEF CTI in the Pacific RETA Countries: Fiji Islands, PNG, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Vanuatu (Palau and FSM for info exchange) Financial resources, 2008-2012: GEF Total = $7.28m ($3.64 BD+$2.73 IW+$0.91 CC/SPA) ADB = $1.55m under Pacific CTI RETA USG = $20m (in parallel through NGOs) Australia = Expected $9m (in parallel) NGOs = At least $6m (WWF, TNC, CI) Participating Governments = still TBD Total = about $45 million over 5 years
