To shape a water-smart society, the B-WaterSmart project developed an assessment framework for multi-stakeholder and strategic decision-making for the transition towards a water-smart society. The framework allows the active participation of a varied set of actors. It puts focus on the multiple essential values, benefits, and risks of water while also including its economic, social, and ecological dimensions as well as their diverse cultural meanings. The B-WaterSmart assessment framework assists decision-makers and practitioners in long-term strategic planning toward the realisation of their water-smart society visions. The framework guides them in the selection of their strategic objectives and in performing the assessment of how well they score versus their set targets.
