Abstract

Water resources are one of the key systems by which climate change will indirectly affect economic and social development sectors. Significant climate change impacts on water resources will have limiting effects on development sectors. Taking these repercussions of climate change impacts on water resources into account in economic and social development planning and management is the main resilience response to implement. In practice, such a response will require relevant specific approaches, knowledge, information, solutions and decision support tools to achieve the desired resilience objectives. In this paper, we describe the Badolo ClimWaterProspect framework, a framework for designing and implementing climate change and water resources integration in development policies actions. It includes methodological tools, knowledge corpuses and a decision support matrix for an objective-based planning of water resources and climate change integration in development policies. The main results of this article are information, solutions and knowledge families, resilience objectives families and a decision support matrix for development sectors resilience to the repercussions of climate change impacts on resources water plans. Fundamentally, The Badolo ClimWaterProspect framework is an innovative, inclusive and participatory tool for significantly improving the relevance, efficiency, performance and impact of water resources and climate change integration in sectoral development policies actions.
