Impact of project:
Impact evaluation in progress
Project Description:
This project aims to create a popular eco-tourism site, which not only protects the environment, but also serves as an opportunity for citizens to earn incomes. The project protects a coastal site that includes seas, beaches, and a reef that has lots of crabs and tropical fish. It prohibits fishing, diving or use of fishing gears is within ten meters of the reef’s edge. This initiative benefits fisherman incomes because the protected area allows crab and fish populations to grow, and fisherman can work just outside the protected area. We also believe the number of fisherman jobs will increase as a result of this initiative.
Why this project is a Good Practice example:
Amal Crab Bay project is a good practice example because it combines conservation with job opportunities.  A portion of the funds from the project have produced workshops, training sessions, and repairing roads. 

Impact Evaluation:
Lessons Learned:
It is acceptable, and sometimes optimal, to focus efforts on just a small area.

Project sustainability is bolstered when job creation efforts also benefit the entire community; in this case, because it also contributes to the environment.
