Sida/SAREC Marin Science Programs in East Africa
Stephen B. Olsen , James Tobey , Per Brinck
A final evaluation of the Sida/SAREC Marine Science Program was completed in July 1999 focusing principally on activities undertaken since a mid-term evaluation in 1996. The Marine Science Program encompasses Bilateral Programs in Mozambique and Tanzania, and a Regional Program that was formally initiated in 1992. The fundamental purpose of these three marine science initiatives has been to build research capacity in the marine sciences on topics relevant to sustainable coastal resource use. The Regional Program added an additional dimension to this capacity-building agenda by featuring activities designed to promote a coastal management process at regional and national scales.
