Adaptation and resilience to drought: From know how to do how

Source(s):  United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)

This paper addresses a need for a paradigm shift towards more proactive and adaptive drought management across South-East Asia. The report provides the evidence base for these interventions, including the recently adopted ASEAN Declaration on the Strengthening of Adaptation to Drought.

The report presents three policy tracks: i) reduce and prevent; ii) prepare and respond; and iii) restore and recover. It can be used for the implementation of the policies and interventions related to the adaptation and resilience to drought. The paper aims to operationalize the policy track to reduce and prevent the negative impacts of drought through cross-sectoral initiatives of addressing the water-food-energy nexus.

The paper concludes with three main recommendations:

  • It is important to include water-food-energy nexus into the drought adaptation and planning process.
  • Multisectoral development professionals in the water, energy, environment and agriculture sector play a very important role in developing policy decisions on drought adaptation.
  • The Add-on tool is a key instrument in developing evidence on the social and economic impacts of drought in order to drive policy decisions.
