The report is organized along the lines of the 2021–2025 Strategy and conveys a growing momentum for the Platform, with key advances in the engagement of new partners and the participation in several global forums. The report does not include all the source-to-sea (S2S)-related activities and outcomes of S2S Platform partners. As the impact and influence of the S2S Platform are achieved by a combination of all efforts by the Secretariat, the Steering Committee, and S2S Platform partners, the results reported here should be seen as a collection of highlights where the Secretariat has been involved or informed. 

The planning for 2021 looked forward to a busy year of international events, including the Climate Adaptation Summit, World Water Week, the International Water Association (IWA) World Water Congress and Exhibition, the United Nations Ocean Conference, the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) World Water Conference, the launch of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Action and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26).
