  • To accomplish this goal, the specific objectives of the one-week seminar are to enhance the capacity of the participants to :
    • Understand drought in the context of Integrated Water Resource Management and Sustainable Development.
    • Evaluate the capacity to anticipate, cope and recover from drought.
    • Carry out drought characterization in their own countries.
    • Apply tools to conduct drought risk assessments in rainfed agriculture and water supply systems.
    • Identify and select appropriate mitigation strategies in support of drought management plans.
    • Develop, implement and evaluate drought management plans in their own countries.
