Source to Sea Guide

The guide presents a general approach that can be used at all levels and can be adapted to the local context. The guide is intended to be a companion to existing project design, planning and implementation methods. It is expected that users of this guide already have an understanding of the project cycle and have access to adequate design, planning and implementation resources. The conceptual framework used as the basis for the guide was first developed by the Action Platform for Source-to-Sea Management and the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in 2016 and was presented and explained in a peer reviewed paper, Granit et al. 2017b, and was used for a STAP advisory document to the GEF, Granit et al. 2017a. This practitioners’ guide builds upon the source-to-sea concept in order to provide guidance for implementing the source-to-sea approach in projects and programmes and fills a gap in how to move from theory to practice by presenting a sequence of steps and guiding practices that will identify the changes needed to address the impacts of alterations in key source-to-sea flows.
