The Visioning Approach in Community Watershed Management Planning

A tool developed in Vietnam, to help communities develop a shared vision of positive change, in relation to community-based adaptation (CBA) and watershed ecosystem management activities.

The visioning approach for CBA supports coordinated, equitable and relevant planning for communities. In other words, it helps to identify what needs to be changed in a community or watershed ecosystem as well as supporting the creation of a vision and a plan of how to reach the desired future.

The approach can be used for CBA watershed management planning, environmental planning for natural resource-dependent people and business development. These plans can, in turn, be integrated into the Socio-Economic Development Plans of communes, districts, and provinces.
