It is encouraging to see governments, experts, and civil society coming together to tackle the complex and far-reaching impacts of drought. I hope the outcomes of this meeting will play a significant role in shaping policies and strategies to mitigate the impacts of drought and promote sustainable development worldwide.

    Celebrating South Africa’s Wetlands - Crucial Conservation Areas South Africa is a water-scarce country, where both droughts and floods are common. Wetlands are able to reduce the severity of droughts and floods by regulating stream flow – they also help to purify water which allows for ecosystems, plants, and animals to flourish. Wetlands play an important part in river catchments both directly and indirectly by contributing to flooding control, drought relief, water storage, sediment and nutrient retention, and water purification, among others.Read the full article here: https://hubs.la/Q02pqYlw0 South Africa is one of the Contracting Parties to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance. South Africa signed the Ramsar Convention at its inception. The membership was formalised in 1975 when South Africa became the fifth country to ratify the Convention. One of the obligations of the Contracting Parties to the Ramsar Convention is to commemorate World Wetlands Day on the 2nd of February.#Nature #Conservation #Environment #PublicSectorLeaders #Publication #TopcoMedia

    Now reading: Our new policy brief launched during the World Water Week demonstrates that enhancing drought resilience is one of the most cost-effective actions countries can take, and is typically far less expensive than interventions focused on responding to, and recovering from, the impacts of droughts.Preparing for droughts, instead of waiting until they strike, not only saves lives and livelihoods, but comes with an array of social and environmental co-benefits, and the economic returns between 2 and 10 times bigger than the initial investment: https://lnkd.in/eyS97qRTUnited Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) The Nature Conservancy UNEP-WCMC Daniel Tsegai Tom Iseman Amarnath Giriraj NOAA National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) The National Drought Mitigation Center#united4land #worldwateweek #drought #disasterpreparedness #disasterrecovery

    Healthy watersheds protect communities from climate change, sustain critical habitats and food sources, and create good local jobs. British Columbia is currently grappling with severe drought conditions that disproportionately affect First Nations. In this op-ed for The Tyee, Terry Teegee, Regional Chief of the BC Assembly of First Nations, urges the Province of British Columbia and the federal government to increase their investment in healthy watersheds and work closely with First Nations to safeguard watersheds, wildlife, and communities.#WatershedsBC #WatershedSecurity #HealthyWatersheds

    ❓️When the flood happens, what will you do?*run to an area which is higher than the flood level*bring along food and water*bring the first aid kit . .These are what the students said after learning how to be resilient with the disasters in our #safeschools project in Cambodia. They are the key actors in protecting themselves from any diasters apart from the school and the government. In the school, we set up facilities such as clean water tanks and toilets. We also develop a gardening field to address climate change. You see, I was doing the planting in the school.#planinternationalhk #planinternationalcambodia#qualityeducation #sdg4

    What does it mean when a President declares a state of #disaster: it signifies the acknowledgment of a severe environmental crisis that has far-reaching impacts on the nation’s agriculture, water supply, and overall public welfare. This formal declaration is an urgent call to action, enabling the government to mobilize resources, both domestically and internationally, to respond effectively to the crisis.This declaration often triggers a series of coordinated efforts, including the allocation of emergency funds, the implementation of water conservation measures, and the initiation of relief programs to support affected communities, particularly in the agriculture sector. It also facilitates the collaboration between government agencies, international partners, and non-governmental organizations to provide aid, such as food assistance, water supplies, and temporary shelter to those most vulnerable.Moreover, declaring a state of disaster highlights the need for long-term strategies to enhance resilience against future droughts. This can include investment in sustainable water management systems, the adoption of drought-resistant crops, and the development of comprehensive disaster preparedness plans.In essence, such a declaration is both a response to immediate needs and a strategic approach to mitigate the adverse effects of drought on the country's economy, environment, and the well-being of its people. It underscores the government's commitment to safeguarding its citizens and sets the groundwork for recovery and resilience-building efforts.#elnino #drought #emergency #disasterriskreduction
