The Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel of the Global Environment Facility (STAP/GEF) commissioned an analysis of the science of integration in relation to systems thinking literature. The paper seeks to strengthen the GEF’s efforts on integrated programming by assessing key aspects of integration based on systems thinking principles required to design and implement natural resource management projects. The analysis focuses on a random sample of cross-cutting GEF projects and case studies to identify challenges and opportunities for the GEF to consider in its future integrated efforts. The paper and accompanying material on the case studies are presented below.
