Preparation of A Strategic Action Programme (SAP) and Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) for the Tumen River Area, Its Coastal Regions and Related Northeast Asian Environs

Project Summary

The purpose of this project is to prepare a Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) and a Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Tumen River Economic Development Area. The implementation of the SAP will assist in the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding among the Tumen River Area Development Programme member states by integrating and applying sound land and water resource management strategies. The implementation of the SAP will also entail a number of interventions focused on the conservation of biodiversity designed to obtain national, regional and global benefits, with GEF financing their incremental cost. The SAP will provide a common framework for the identification and formulation of strategies, programmes and projects, responding primarily to transboundary issues of environmental management.
