A practical guide for developing country governments:

This document respond to the need to integrate climate risk-based approaches, which address climate variability and climate change, within water policy frameworks. It aims to provide guidance on how resilience and adaptation can be integrated into national-level policy and programmatic planning in the water sector. It is also for donor institutions wishing to support the integration of adaptation through development cooperation, as well as for civil society organisations as they contribute to national policy processes and ensure that the voice of the poorest and most vulnerable people impact decision-making.

The guide is divided into four tasks, each with a set of sub-tasks. It also includes a sequence of steps and suggested approaches to break down activities further, with the intention to help the user accomplish each sub-task.
