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

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

With the aim of guiding the implementation of the HFA in respect to drought, the ISDR secretariat in cooperation with the National Drought Mitigation Center (University of Nebraska, USA) and other partners has developed the present document, based on current thinking and practice in many countries. It elaborates a framework for understanding drought and vulnerability to drought, and provides guidance on actions to reduce the risks associated with drought. The document 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.
