Bay of Bengal LME Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) Volume 1
This document was prepared after the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) Confirmation Workshop held in Phuket Thailand from 13 to 14 February 2012. A TDA identifies, quantifies and ranks water-related environmental transboundary issues and their causes according to the severity of environmental and/or socio-economic impacts. The TDA of the BOBLME draws on numerous studies and extensive regional and national consultations with stakeholders. Importantly, the TDA provides the scientific basis for the development of the Strategic Action Programme that sets out a strategy for the countries to collectively deal with transboundary issues. The TDA is published in two volumes. Volume 1 describes the transboundary issues in the Bay of Bengal Large Marine Ecosystem (BOBLME) and their proximate and underlying root causes. These will be used to develop a Strategic Action Programme (SAP).
