Seychelles, 2018
Sustainable Development Goals – Seychelles Coastal Management

Recommendations:

  1. The National Oversight Committee that oversees the implementation and reporting of the SDG should address the gaps identified by the RIA assessment and ensure that all SDG targets are met and that the national plans are effectively implemented. Together with other stakeholders they should also identify ways to raise more awareness on the SDGs across the population.
  2. The Policies, Acts and Regulations that governs coastal zone management in Seychelles should be updated and revised to align with the current situation. The country should also develop its Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan which will assist in the sustainable development and management of its vulnerable coastal areas.
  3. The Enforcement agencies such as the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change should maintain proper records in regards to pollution cases. The Seychelles National Oil Spill Contingency Plan should be revised and updated to reflect current best practices to address an oil spill. Other entities such as the Ports Authority should also be vigilant on port activities that may pollute these areas.
  4. Coastal adaptation projects being implemented in the Seychelles to mitigate the impact of coastal degradation and erosion should be carefully planned, implemented and managed. Authorities should adopt a pro-active approach and ensure that the most appropriate coastal mitigation option is being used. These projects should also follow the relevant Procurement Acts and Regulations.
  5. Coastal monitoring and enforcement should be enhanced to reduce the incidence of illegal fishing and overfishing. Synergies should be enhanced between respective authorities to effectively apprehend and bring those guilty to court in a timely manner. Better monitoring and implementation of fishing agreement, conditions and regulations should be in place to ensure that there is no overfishing.

Recommendations:

Taking a whole of Government approach, the recommendations are to various Ministries, Provinces and other Spending Agencies (MPSAs). The MPSAs include Ministry of Finance, Ministry of National Development Planning/ National Secretariat for SDGs implementation, Ministry of Local Government, the Decentralization Secretariat and Cabinet Office among others. Some of the recommendations made include:

  • i. A concrete way forward should be developed by the Ministry of National Development and Planning (MNDP) to ensure the uptake of the SDGs targets not aligned in 7NDP. MNDP should ensure that there is continuity when drafting the successive National Development Plan (NDP) so that the targets are included in the subsequent NDP.
  • ii. The coordination Ministry, MNDP should engage Sectors, Provincial Administration and district Councils in reviewing and/or developing implementation plans that will in turn align to the 7NDP and the SDGs and provide clear guidance.
  • iii. The MNDP has to strengthen the National Statistical System and come up with tools that will be required to comprehensively measure all the elements identified in the 7NDP and SDG Agenda.
  • iv. Ministry of Finance should estimate the total cost of Zambia attaining the Agenda 2030 and estimate the cost under different scenarios.
  • v. Ministry of Finance should develop a more innovative financing strategy for the SDGs unlike placing more reliance on traditional sources.
