This new National Manual for Drought Management suggests a system for drought management policy and programmes to be followed by the Government of India and state governments. It focuses on the general / common elements of drought management at the national level, while allowing the states to include their specific schemes and interventions and includes drought forecasting, monitoring, response, and mitigation, as a continuum of activities. The objective of this Manual is to serve as a handbook for all the decision-makers and administrators, from the Government of India to the village-level. Yet it has the necessary flexibility to include State-level details of implementation. The Manual would be updated regularly at the national level on the basis of new experiences and interventions in drought management so that it includes all the evolving approaches and practices in drought management on a dynamic basis.
