Ready for the dry years: Building resilience to drought in South-East Asia

Source(s):  Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN)
United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)

This study identifies actions that ASEAN Member States can individually and collectively undertake to mitigate the impacts of drought. It proposes three priority areas of intervention for ASEAN and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific:

  1. Strengthen drought risk assessment and early warning services.
  2. Foster risk financing instruments that can insure communities against slow-onset droughts.
  3. Enhance people’s capacities to adapt to drought, thereby reducing the potential for conflict.

The study argues that many timely steps taken now can contribute towards protecting the poorest communities and fostering more peaceful societies.
