TDA/SAP Methodology

The Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis/Strategic Action Programme (TDA/SAP) approach is a highly collaborative process that has proven to be a major component of GEF International Waters projects over the last 16 years.

There is no ‘standard’ approach to the TDA/SAP process: each water system and each IW Project is unique and the resultant TDA and SAP will also be unique. However, this manual provides a 'non-prescriptive', simple and stepwise approach for the TDA/SAP process that many projects have followed over the last 10 years. It includes references and links to best practices and experiences from a wealth of completed and on-going projects.
