TDA/SAP Methodology

(2020 Edition) The Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis/Strategic Action Programme (TDA/SAP) approach is a highly collaborative process that has proven to be a major strategic planning tool for GEF International Waters Projects over the last 26 years. The TDA/SAP approach was first presented as a guidance document, and was later accompanied by an associated online training course. In 2017, IW:LEARN updated the original guidance document incorporating links and brief summaries of other recent guidance material developed by GEF Projects including IW:LEARN and LME:LEARN. The document looks at the key steps recommended to enable all those involved in the development of the TDA/SAP (project staff, consultants, national experts, civil society, private sector, government representatives, etc.) to have an awareness of the process and the necessary requirements.
