Managing too much or too little water: integrated drought managment


This factsheet addresses WMO and UN efforts to establish science-based foundations for practical and proactive drought policies at national level to make drought-prone countries more resilient. Using examples from Kenya and various countries in Asia and Central and Eastern Europe, it presents the coordinated drive towards science-based drought disaster risk reduction, the new Integrated Drought Management Programme established by WMO and the Global Water Partnership and the the IFM HelpDesk, a web-based facility that provides pragmatic, demand-driven guidance strategy, policy and technical know-how to increase resilience to floods while using best practices to enhance beneficial aspects of floods.
