The process for integrating and managing environment and climate risks
and opportunities into the DFID programme design process has changed.
New SMART rules commit DFID to a suite of technical quality standards
which guide decisions at each stage of the programme cycle. These
include a commitment to the principles of sustainability and resilience
and to avoiding doing harm. This replaces the mandatory climate and
environment assessment process (CEA). To guide the application of the
SMART rules, DFID are examining the appropriateness of existing
international climate and environment safeguard systems; they are
seeking to understand their relevance to DFID operations. This key sheet
was developed in relation to water resources management and supply to
trial the production of key sheets to be used during the DFID design
process. It is organised under the following headings: Sector components
and activities; Sources of impact and receptors/resources; and
Mitigation and management options.
