One of the mission of the Adour-Garonne Water Agency is to improve the understanding of issues related to global change and to enhance stakeholders’ awareness in the making process decision (including adaptation, prevention…). Thus, the Adour-Garonne Water Agency was involved recently in a national research project called IMAGINE2030 (ClImate and water MAnaGement: uncertaINties on water resources for the Garonne rivEr basin in 2030 ?).

The Strategic Pilot on Adaptation to Climate Change or SPACC organizes the farmers residing within a Hydrological Unit (natural drainage basin) as a group and provides the necessary scientific information and builds the adaptive capacity of the farmer to face the consequences of the drought, collectively. Being part of the Hydrological Unit makes the inhabitants dependent on each other, sharing the common resources.The ultimate goal of SPACC is to evolve “Community Climate Adaptation Plan (CCAP)”, at the HU level. Building the adaptive capacity of the communities in a HU is the over-arching strategy adopted to evolve the CCAP.

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.

Droughts have several economical, social and environmental impacts, depending on their intensity and duration. Occurrence of droughts is a natural event and it is not specific to a region or climatic regime, and it can occur in different climatic and geographic situations. Unlike floods that have limited coverage areas, droughts usually affect vast regions, and this causes a more widespread and extensive range of impacts which last for a long time. Therefore, droughts affect a large number of populations in comparison with other natural disasters. The experiences in developed and developing countries on drought management has proved that besides the level of development, the impacts and consequences of this phenomenon is deep and considerable, even with different characteristics and nature.  With no doubt, the occurrence of this phenomenon is one of the important obstacles in the development process of the countries. As the impacts of this event lasts for a long period, the countries and people who have been affected by this phenomenon are forced to spend extensive financial resources to encounter it during and after the event.
