Indices of Drought Proneness and Drought Vulnerability

Publisher: Planning Commission

One of the principal aims of this study is to construct a more holistic drought vulnerability index that takes into account ecological, socio-economic and production conditions. This is closely related to the second aim of this work, which is to evolve typologies that categorize blocks amenable to a similar matrix of interventions. Both these exercises in turn feed into the third aim of this work, namely to suggest a water policy for drought proofing in Chhattisgarh by identifying the more vulnerable areas and the underlying causes for drought proneness.
