The project will support national governments to better understand drought emergency life cycle and its management phases with a view to adopt appropriate nature-based solutions that will help communities to prepare, respond, recover from and mitigate drought. These nature-based solutions include measures to safeguard water availability through improved land and ecosystem health, reduce vulnerability to natural droughts that are the outcome of low precipitation, and which are influenced by climate change and weather fluctuations. The project objective is to strengthen national and sub-national drought management planning by integrating ecological restoration actions to reduce drought hazard and exposure (Nature Based Solutions to drought).
The expected results include:
Result 1: Dialogue on drought in national and international fora is influenced by new analyses of the relationship between drought and land health.
Result 2: Increased capacity among public sector actors to use policy analysis and good practice guidelines for integrating NbS-Drought in existing drought strategies.
Result 3: National and sub-national drought management plans incorporate Nature-based Solutions, including SLM practices that reduce the frequency and severity of drought.
Objective:
The Project aims to achieve at national and sub-national level that drought management planning and action incorporates Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to drought management in drought-prone locations.
