Restoration of coastal ecosystems and rebuilding the lives of affected local communities received much attention in the wake of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Conscious efforts from a wide range of sectors thereafter have contributed to bringing about positive changes in the management of impacted coastal areas. This has produced a large body of information at institutional and individual levels to be shared and utilized.
MFF believes that effective knowledge management, sharing of best practices and lessons learnt will play a valuable role in translating accurate knowledge into meaningful action.
To "build back better.." the vital link between coastal ecosystems and human livelihoods, MFF embraces a people-centered approach that creates opportunities for sustainable livelihoods and resilient communities. This approach is hinged on a philosophy of effective lesson learning and well informed planning process.
To realize its overarching goals of sustainable coastal management, MFF employs a robust monitoring mechanism. The MFF Monitoring Learning and Evaluation (MLE) process is designed for systematic collection of information, demonstrating results and capturing lessons learnt. Its analytical and adaptive nature allows real time feedback and enables emerging trends to be accommodated into the MFF plan.
