This guide aim to strengthen local capacities, the target audience of the guide comprises personnel from ministries and officials from provinces involved with climate change, infrastructure planning, and natural resources management. It may be used to better plan climate-resilient actions as part of national programmes, diagnose particular situations at the local level or support local climate action.

It completes the “Water Resources Management: Development, Integration, and Implementation” guide by giving an in-depth focus on community vulnerability assessments to improve water resources management. This document builds on lessons learned from recent experiences in Lao PDR and the region to address the adaptation planning gap, especially for water resources management.
