Noting the development of climate change and such resulting changes such as drought, the UN- Water Decade Programme on Capacity Development (UNW-DPC) and its partners have produced a document which provides a synthesis on National Drought Management Policies.
This document presents the major objectives of the “Capacity Development to Support National Drought Management Policy (NDMP)” initiative, the rationale behind national drought management policies, key pillars and the 10-step process for developing national drought policies and drought preparedness plans, as well as, lessons learnt from series of regional workshops.
One may also find details on challenges and key steps for countries wishing to develop and implement national drought policies.
Expected readers of this document include government policymakers and relevant stakeholders charged with assisting them in building drought resilient communities.
