Drought Management Plan

Drought Management Plan (DMP) is designed to help reduce the time taken in mobilizing resources for an effective response and enable a harmonious relationship among stakeholders. The goal of DMP is to facilitate overall management of the drought situation in a structured and planned manner with the most efficient and optimum utilisation of time, effort and resources so that adverse impact on the community is minimised. DMP helps in delineating roles and responsibilities of different Ministries/ Departments of the Government of India involved in drought management for mitigation, preparedness and for relief measures in managing the drought. DMP ensures better preparation and timely communication among stakeholders, which is critical in managing a drought.
