The purpose of these guidelines is to support water governance capacity and ecosystem-based climate change adaptation measures in river basins around the world. In so doing, the guidelines provide a useful reference tool for policy-makers, decision-makers, actors within the civil society and anyone else who has an interest in strengthening ecosystem-based climate change adaptation.

The report comprises two sections, the first of which presents experiences in the adoption of ecosystem-based climate change adaptation strategies in various parts of the world and offers some insights into the types of mechanisms, institutions, policies and legal measures that could be taken to effectively adapt to climate change-induced impacts on river basins. The second section offers a more detailed analysis of the key measures that have been adopted in order to adapt to climate change within a transboundary water context, identifying nine key principles central to the development of climate change adaptation measures.
