According to the World Bank, this project will address three components related to capacity building for ocean governance and coastal and marine geospatial planning. The first goal is to strengthen governance through development of coastal and marine spatial plans and associated training, development of national ocean strategies and policies, and enhancing alignment of regional ocean poicy with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The second objective is to strengthen knowledge of institutions and citizens for ocean governance. Last, the project aims to ensure effective project implementation, monitoring of activities, and final project evaluation through management, assessment, and monitoring.
