A Framework for Climate Resilient WASH and integrated water management

This document provides a framework for Plan International (Plan) integrated, inclusive, climate resilient water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and Integrated Water Management (IWM) programming that supports transformative change and which is aligned with Plan’s strategic objectives and approaches.

Resilience programming is recognised as one of Plan’s key strategies to respond to the climate crisis. Delivering climate resilient WASH and IWM will contribute to Plan’s core vision of a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls, including climate justice.

Programs and projects will directly strengthen the resilience of vulnerable communities against climate change. By adopting the framework set out in this document, and undertaking the suggested steps, practitioners can develop programs that result in water and sanitation services that are:

  1. inclusive
  2. gender transformative
  3. climate resilient.

By doing this, WASH behaviours and services are more likely to be sustainable in a context of uncertainty and a changing climate.
