In January 2008, Mary Rose Nakayama, Conservation Environment Protection Program Manager, Alissa Takesy, FSM Protected Areas Network Coordinator, Angelo Villagomez, Executive Director, Marianas Island Nature Alliance and I made our first attempt at creating a reporting format for the MIC Members that would link the Country/State Reports to the MIC Measures. (To keep this update short) although it was a great first attempt, the reporting format would have been shunned by members due to the amount of time it would take to complete.
Realizing that we needed a bit more help we asked a long time MIC Friend and creator, Audrey Newman, TNC Senior Advisor to the Asia Pacific Region, to come and give us a hand. Audrey being true to form, did not hesitate to come out to Pohnpei for a week to assist us with our measures. This is what we came up with:
1. Network effectiveness
3. Leader Satisfaction
5. Organizational effectiveness
6. Effectively managed conservation sites
-effective conservation practices (via scorecard, CAP or equivalent)
