Abstract:Since 1991-1992 significant efforts have been made to improve drought management in the SADC region. Drawing largely on reports and papers presented at the regional and national drought workshops held between September 1993 and May 1994 and the high-level regional drought seminar held in Gaborone in November 1997, the author discusses the emerging strategies and thinking in drought management in southern Africa and the challenges faced by the region. Key elements of the proposed framework for drought management include improving regional cooperation, developing national drought management strategies, institutional capacity building and training, and research.
