A Conceptual Framework for Governing and Managing Key Flows in a Source-to-Sea Continuum
This publication aims to present foundations for the integration of “blue” and “green” economic growth opportunities in the source-to-sea continuum. The paper defines the continuum and discusses key biophysical flows and linkages across open oceans, adjoining seas, estuaries, coastal areas, freshwater systems and land or terrestrial systems. It discusses how the GEF portfolios address these linkages and reviews case studies of source to sea initiatives in order to draw out key factors that can be used to build sustainability into GEF projects.
