HELP Guiding Principles for Drought Risk Management under a Changing Climate
In recent years, countries around the world have been hit hard by drought events that affect food supplies, agricultural incomes, employment, drinking water supplies, ecosystem health, transportation systems, and energy production. As the risk of drought is increasing due to ongoing climate change the HELP community started the flagship initiative to draft a report as guidance for supporting, defining and
refining DRR for drought risk management. In this report proactive approaches, having greater emphasis on building resilience, are advocated.
