Development of Methodologies for GEF Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme
|Project Category:||Portfolio Learning/Policy|
This MSP proposal addresses the need for peer reviewed, innovative and cost effective methodologies for assessing the changing states of the world’s transboundary groundwaters, surface waters, large marine ecosystems, and ocean areas. The Strategic Objectives of the GEF International Waters Focal Area for GEF 4 advance the need for a methodology for periodically assessing and reporting trends on the condition and status of the World’s Transboundary Waters and a way to keep track of results being accomplished by GEF in these large water systems. The GEF 4 strategy terms this the GEF Transboundary Waters Assessment Program. The project will develop the methodologies, bring potential partners together, and formulate the design and arrangements for conducting such a periodic global assessment.
