The Global Water Partnership, in collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), is organizing a regional workshop on Integrated Drought Management (IDM) to identify critical issues and explore cooperative strategies in enhancing capacities to address the water scarcity and droughts in the region of Central and Eastern Europe.
The aims of the workshop are to:
- join the expertise of the GWP Technical Committee, GWP CEE and WMO in addressing drought management, applying an integrated approach;
- bring together key stakeholders from targeted sectors: meteorology, water management and agriculture, and identify concrete institutions to contribute to the IDM Programme;
- inform important organizations at regional and national levels on matters that are or may be drought affected;
- define a roadmap for a joint GWP-WMO IDM Programme in Central and Eastern Europe in the years 2013-2015.
The Workshop will be hosted by the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute, Bratislava, Slovakia, on October 5-6, 2012.
