Drought risk reduction framework and practices: contributing to the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action

Source(s):  National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC)
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

With the aim of guiding the implementation of the Hyogo Framework Framework (HFA) in respect to drought, this document elaborates a framework for understanding drought and vulnerability to drought, and provides guidance on actions to reduce the risks associated with drought. It discusses drought policy and governance, risk identification and early warning, awareness and knowledge management, and effective mitigation and preparedness measures. These framework elements are illustrated with practical examples, techniques, and extensive background information.

This document is intended to assist national governments and local communities, as well as international, regional and donor communities, to address the root causes of drought-related disasters, and to reduce drought impacts and the consequences for human welfare and food insecurity.

This document has been developed by the UNISDR secretariat in cooperation with the National Drought Mitigation Center (University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA) and other partners, on the basis of current thinking and practice in many countries.
