   2) Identify indicators for monitoring the three areas identified by the full AMG, namely:

  • project implementation and monitoring

  •  socio-economic impacts of the projects,

  • and the collaborative adaptive management approach, and

   3) Develop a management system to track and report the finding and results of monitoring
       and
 research efforts over the life of the SBEADMR project.

The Monitoring Committee met in August and October and will meet again in December.  The Committee will report back to the full AMG membership in January, 2018. Minutes of the Monitoring Committee will be posted on the PLP website.
