Prioritization for 2019: Lindlyn
Emails from Int Prog Dep:
Process keeps improving and changing anually
Process involves some survey's, some networking, proposals. The 1st step for GPAf - is to identiy our priorities for 2019. We are yet to develop our programme plans. Int prog dept feedback was shared with PLT - What we should work on, set as priorities, mindset changes. consensus that FFL should be added as priorit
A lot of discussions have been held about which should be our priority projects. Conclusion = 1.Climate justice 2. Fish meal 3. Plastics
Fish meal = Distant water fishing project. SEt as priority by GPI. Fish are used to feed other fish and ppl.
REsearch is being done = REport done, meetings in France with the team. Project hopefully be prepared by 2019 and ready to set out
Question:1. How do the locals feel about this project? RElevant for the locals as they are facing many challenges. 2. Is there a specific fish species at risk? Fish meal targets the small/pelagic fishermen, fishing vessels and plants, are accessing these fish making it.... 3. Which European countries are fed/involved with this fish meal? France, UK. The animal feed is a high nutrient content - Livestock = Denmark e.g. Globally there are many other NRO involved. Q3. Mindset - Work with communities is of importance, although sometimes the communities contribute to the disaster because of their own needs. Q4. Based on the research results the approach toward the communities will then be determined. Q5. ARe there any local laws contributing toward the FMeal - This was a non-existent issue in the past. Q6. Process - When are the concept notes going to be submitted? No clear concept note has yet been defined. GPI and various other NRO's are involved. It has the potential to grow. Very controversial. Not going through the formal project cycle. FR - If we FR in SA and Kenya, should we not prioritize something which would help us to FR? Potential for making FM work. Would there be an ask for creating sanctuaries? Possibly, don't know yet. EEZ = Exclusive Economic Zone. FM issue is gaining a lot of international moment, so not something we can ignore - should be made a priority. Q7. GPELM - Each NRO prioritizes its own project, so are our priorities the priorities for GPI and can we link one of our projects with one of those of other NRO's = A7. Funnel system - Toko(22:0000) Discussion after the decision on how the NRO's will proceed. Yes, once we say these projects are our 2019 project pushes, we will push them into the global calendar/ agenda. If we look at the development level of the fisheries project, it may be difficult to pass it through...(Vic 25:000). GPI does see it as a priority as they are putting in 50000 Euro's.
Plastics = for FR this resonates really strongly.
For Central African public - there are too many open questions not yet answered by GPAf. Cause more probs than solving any in Cameroon. Probs = Vols sent to talk to ppl and they could not answer the public questions. Strategy / strong base is not yet there for plastics and to already call it a priority and we still need a lot of time. Q1 Mbong......A1. In terms of visibility the Water crises work stand out, IRP - get ppl to connect, need to engage audiences. Q3 Plastics - Need to consider the alternatives before making plastics priority - what are we offering/proposing as alternatives as GP? ARe the bags offered by supermarkets, sustainable? Not everyone can afford. Q4 (Irene 35:000), do we also have an answer for additional resources? Q1 - 2018 Priorities: Climate Justice. Concern - want to keep (Toko 38:000) would we be able to handle it? ARe we just taking on the priorities of r2018 into 2019 which was not yet handled fully? Concern - if we don't have any projects in 2019 to replace that of 2019 ...(Mbong 39:000) spending too much time, risk. A: We are trying to establish a full project for 2019 - not just an issue to pushing them on, but they are still relevant. Extensive discussions with GPI have been held - the Political situation has caused the Forest projects not being pushed forward. How do we do political work with other civil society work and remain independent? SMT has asked us to create space for responsive work. We should be looking for more responsive opportunities. We are a campaigning org and need to look for responsive opportunities, but also making sure that (45:000). Its a learning for us as we knew from the start the Climate justice is heavily reliant on IRP. Plastics project is in the phase of (46:000). Fishmeal, we can control the timeline. Learnings are also dependent on external affairs. As long as the prob exists we will have responsive work - Storytelling, narrative works, agee with campaigning in terms of the content released. Having space for response is very important. Global Camp = Goodlife Campaign. There's a good sense that we carry forward the 3 proposed projects - And if we move forward with these, we need to further sell these as global priorities (plastics was originally an African priority). Another thing we need to get clarity on is to look at the projects which are coming to an end / phasing out. Need to have a good map of where we are and where we are headed with our projects. There is a further call for us to go deeper into our projects and not necessarily to have more projects. Projects we're bringing the ships for: Take 2 big projects and a creative space for responsive work. (55:000-56:000). We need to prepare ourselves for groundwork. Can we change priorities? We should be open to change priorities if certain priorities are not working.
