Abstract: "Droughts are typical in Pakistan as in most of southwest Asia and continue causing multiple adverse impacts. This paper reviews factors affecting or associated with droughts in the target areas. It identifies gaps in the institutional and policy arenas with recommendations for remedial measures. It also provides analyses of coping strategies adopted by stakeholders in mitigating droughts, and documents lessons gained during previous drought cycles. This study is part of the Regional Project on 'Drought Assessment and Potential for Mitigation in Southwest Asia' which is being implemented by IWMI in collaboration with regional partners."
