Enhancing Climate Services for Improved Water Management

Flood and Drought Policy

Strengthen national drought and flood risk management strategies and policies

  • As a first step in this process, a background document will be developed that identifies the current national drought and flood policies in pilot countries of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • In a second step, a technical policy panel will be invited to discuss potential improvements in current policies, taking into account the climate services developed during the project to move away from crisis management towards risk management as promoted in the Sendai framework for disaster risk reduction.
  • Finally, a High Level meeting will be held on national drought and flood risk management strategies and policies to discuss current strategies, and identify opportunities to move towards proactive drought and flood risk management
