Drought Management Plan

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2005
South Africa's Drought Management Plan has four key areas of focus: institutional arrangements, integrated institutional capacity, disaster risk assessment and reduction planning, and response and recovery. The plan proposes a number of specific actions, including creating and maintaining an information management system, monitoring and evaluation, conducting research (including research specifically about climate change), giving technical assistance to provincial agricultural departments' drought assessments, implementing early warning systems, incorporating drought into disaster risk reduction programs, procuring funds from the national treasury, and encouraging participation in disaster risk and drought reduction programs at all levels of government.
