The effects of drought are due both to the physical nature of the hazard, and to society´s ability to manage the associated risks. Droughts have often been dealt with in a reactive manner rather than by applying a pre-emptive management approach that allows the effective use of all available information. Policy development related to national and regional management of drought is generally unsatisfactory and even lacking in most countries. Likewise, drought early warning, consisting of monitoring and prediction, is inadequate in most regions and there is insufficient capacity in many drought-prone countries to use drought prediction results and tools effectively in management practice.
