The newly published Implementing the source-to-sea approach: A guide for practitioners supports professionals to apply the source-to-sea approach during project design, implementation and evaluation. This builds upon the conceptual framework 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). The guide presents a general approach that can be used at all levels and adapted to local contexts. For each step, it provides relevant background materials, case studies and guiding questions to identify the changes needed to address the impacts of alterations in key source-to-sea flows.
