This framework describes a potential format for a Guideline (or tool) to help ensure water demand management principles and practice are encapsulated in water resource management and development projects. The starting-point for the guidelines would be the emergence of the growing consensus that Water Demand Management (WDM)is an essential component of sustainable development and environmental protection. The Guidelines would accept the pre-existence of a consensus around the core principles to be applied in water policy and practice and provide users with a strong understanding of the rationale for these. Building on the WDM principles, a checklist approach would be presented under the various principle categories that would alert users to key issues and potential responses when formulating or reviewing project proposals. The final part of the Guideline would provide support information and references to further information. Included as part of this framework are examples of what may be included in the various chapters. It is not intended to be a comprehensive nor final document but merely a skeletal draft to prompt discussion. The work was led by HR Wallingford as part of a Knowledge and Research project(Contract KaR R7135) funded by the British Government’s Department for International Development (DFID).
