A generalized framework and a feasibility study in Bangladesh, in Water (4), doi:10.3390/w4020345:

This study proposes a generalized framework for scientifically based vulnerability assessment to support participatory decision making processes in the field of water resources management (WRM), with a specific interest for climate change adaptation. In developing such a framework, section 2 reviews the most recent international literature, while the framework itself is described in Section 3. Section 4 introduces the Lower Brahmaputra River Basin (LBRB), the case study utilised for preliminary feasibility analysis of the proposed approach with its potential implementation on the LBRB area and discusses the results of a survey with local experts and stakeholders. Finally, Section 5 concludes the results discussing the operationalization of the framework and the experiences in the study case and identifies future research needs.
