Identified critical issues

Identified Critical Issues

  • Supporting systematic collection and processing of meteorological and hydrological observations;

  • Building and strengthening scientific networks;

  • Developing an inventory of climate and water resources indicators and indices;

  • Improved understanding of the drought climatology;

  • Understanding the principal causes of drought at local, regional, and global levels;

  • Decision support models for the dissemination of drought-related information;

  • Development and dissemination of vulnerability/risk assessment tools (social and environmental);

  • Dissemination of drought planning methodologies to drought-prone countries

  • Development of national and regional drought management policies

  • Support development of regional networks for drought preparedness that would build greater institutional capacity at the local, national, and regional capacity, sharing lessons learned in drought monitoring, prediction, vulnerability assessment, preparedness, and policy development;

  • Education and awareness of policy makers and the public;

  • Enhancement of collaboration between regional and international organizations


Recommendations

ISDR’s Ad Hoc Drought Discussion Group, should continue to collaborate on how to implement actions designed to achieve the integrated approach to reducing societal vulnerability to drought, primarily through email contact between members of the discussion group. Report semi-annually or annually to the Inter-Agency Task Force, as appropriate.

The Group recommend that UN/ISDR should support fundraising jointly with partners

UN/ISDR should develop jointly with relevant UN and non-UN technical institution, a proposal for the further development of a global network on drought preparedness

the proposal for a global drought preparedness network should be further consult with additional relevant organizations for the purpose of involving them gradually in the networking process.

UN/ISDR should play a critical role in fostering the further development of regional drought preparedness networks, resource mobilization to support these networks, and coordinating activities between the regions.

UN/ISDR should facilitate development of an information clearinghouse on drought management.

Recommendations


Proposed global drought risk reduction network

Proposed Global Drought Risk Reduction Network

PARTNERS: FAO, WMO, UNDP, UNEP, UNCCD, IFAD, Worldbank, UN Regional Economic Commissions, others regional Organizations, the NDMC/IDIC at the University of Nebraska, The IRI/Columbia University, DMC’s, ACMAD, Global Fire Monitoring Center, and other key partners at the regional and national level.


Proposed activities drought network

· Organize regional workshops to launch the regional Networks and identify partners and coordinating institutions, as well as the primary objectives and activities of the regional network;

·Organize a workshop in Geneva to launch the global process and identify partners, donors, common goals for the regional networks, and appropriate coordinating mechanisms;

·Establishment of a global website, managed by ISDR-Secretariat and linked with regional websites;

·Identify activities to bring together natural and social scientists to implement the vision of drought management proposed by the ISDR Drought Discussion Group.
