Bolivia - Climate Resilience - Integrated Basin Management Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 3) : Marco para la gestion ambiental del PPCR 2 (Spanish)

The Project Development Objective (PDO) of the Climate Resilience - Integrated Basin Management Project of Bolivia is to strengthen Bolivia's capacity to adapt to climate change effects at the national level and set the foundations to improve the climate resilience of socioeconomic and natural systems in two sub-basins of the Rio Grande by implementing a river basin management approach. The project will support the implementation of Bolivia's strategy towards climate change adaptation. This strategy proposes the adoption of an integrated, multi-sectoral, participatory, basin-scale approach to climate change adaptation. This approach is justified because: (i) most climate change impacts will be channeled through modifications to the hydrological cycle which is defined at the basin level; (ii) these changes in the hydrological cycle will affect various economic sectors, people wellbeing and the environment, which calls for the adoption of a multi-sectoral, integrated approach and finally (iii) stakeholders participation, by increasing ownership and accountability, is related to more sustainable results, improved management outcomes and reduced conflicts. The project will support the implementation of Bolivia's strategy by strengthening institutional capacity. This would entail two types of actions: (i) actions to strengthen the institutional capacity at the central level to facilitate/support basin-scale planning and management and (ii) actions to pilot the new approach in priority basins. The project is expected to have significantly positive environmental outcomes as it will support implementation of an Integrated River Basin Management system in selected sub-basins, access to more integrated and reliable climate and water information and adoption of better practices in targeted production systems, natural habitats and settlements in the two pilot sub-basins. Possible negative impacts from these small-scale investments are expected to be low, localized and reversible.
