Practical guidelines for Early Warning - Early Action plans on agricultural drought


This guide seeks to link various instruments to enhance drought monitoring, together with the methods developed to measure impacts on agriculture and food security. This was done through bringing together a number of tools and concepts developed by FAO. By linking these efforts and tools to national drought mitigation plans, a bridge is established between early warning systems and drought mitigation in the field (early action) to avoid losses in agriculture and reduce the risk of food insecurity.
