Integrated Drought Management HelpDesk

The Integrated Drought Management HelpDesk provides access to tailor-made support for an integrated approach to drought management and the latest knowledge and guidance on drought management policy and practice to countries. It was developed by The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Global Water Partnership (GWP) with support of the over 30 expert institutions, which are partners of the Integrated Drought Management Program (IDMP).

Drought management plan and policy guidance as well as country examples is available at the Integrated Drought Management HelpDesk.  

A continuously updated list of drought monitoring and early warning tools and examples is available at the Integrated Drought Management HelpDesk Pillar Section. Also, an overview of the most commonly used drought indicators and resources to apply them is available at the Integrated Drought Management HelpDesk indicator and indices database and  Handbook on Drought Indicators and Indices.
