Support action, innovation and learning to address source-to-sea priorities

The Action Platform for Source-to-Sea Management (S2S Platform) was launched in 2014 as a multi-stakeholder initiative to exchange and generate knowledge, and support joint action for improved management of land, water, coastal and marine linkages. The S2S Platform is open to all stakeholders that are committed to improving coherence and coordination in land, water and coastal management. Particular strengths of the S2S Platform include its ability to bridge the knowledge-policy-practice space by mobilizing and drawing upon a diverse set of partners engaged in research, policy making, funding and implementation of source-to-sea actions. It focuses on governance and management innovations to address the full range of source-to-sea issues.

Expected impact

The Action Platform for Source-to-Sea Management will facilitate contact between decision-makers and experts to provide on-demand knowledge, support, advice and guidance to policy making and implementation on freshwater, land, coast and sea. By doing so, it will enhance the efforts of the international community to fulfill inter alia its commitments to the Manila Declaration and the implementation of the SDG agenda and its integrated and indivisible targets.
