Integrated Drought Management Programme (IDMP)

Whether due to natural climate variability or climate change, the likelihood of extreme weather conditions is increasing. The impacts include more frequent and severe droughts, which affect the lives of millions of people and cause great economic losses. The Integrated Drought Management Programme (IDMP) provides advice and guidelines to communities, countries and regions affected by drought through the Integrated Drought Management HelpDesk.

The wider scope of the Programme is to build climate resilience, reduce economic and social losses, and alleviate poverty in drought-affected regions of the world through an integrated approach to drought management, which cuts across sectoral, disciplinary and institutional jurisdictions and is responsive to specific regional and national needs and requirements.
