    The Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development (MOFAD) 1 July 2018

US Department of State data indicates that an estimated 600,000 to 820,000 men, women and children are trafficked across international borders yearly, with approximately 50 percent being minors.

  • 2018 Monitoring and Evaluation Plan (Revised May, 2018)

    Coastal Resources Center 1 May 2018

    Following USAID ADS 203 guidance, this document serves as the project’s Monitoring and Evaluation Plan (M&E Plan). The M&E Plan is a tool for planning, managing, evaluating, and documenting progress towards achieving the goals of the project. It will help us methodologically evaluate and communicate the project’s relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability. It will be part of our overarching learning strategy that is based on adaptive management, sound science for management, stakeholder participation, and periodic self-evaluation. The M&E Plan includes two major components. First is the Performance Monitoring Plan (PMP) and its associated indicator reporting which is tied to the project goal and intermediate results. Second is a knowledge management and learning strategy to communicate and share information, results, and lessons—and solicit input and feedback for adaptive management. This approach will optimize the project’s performance and ensure accountability to USAID and the Ghanaian and American people.
