Towards drought free India

Source(s):  All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI)

Drought is one of the main challenges to the implementation of the Sendai Framework in Asia. The 2016 drought in India has affected close to 330 million people from 10 states. Bad monsoons and weak policies around water security have further compounded the problem and precipitated a crisis. In reality, with close to 60% of the population involved in agriculture and allied activities, droughts in India can be particularly debilitating.
