..."This book and video were created to move the practice of drought mitigation beyond disaster management and into sustainable development and practice.. The book outlines terms and concepts in drought mitigation and discusses perceptions of risk and common meanings of drought. It explains drought vulnerability and risk assessment, outlines methods for planning and implementing drought mitigation, and lists materials for further exploration of this topic. The video contains three training films that present the experiences of different communities dealing with drought.": Natural Hazards Observer
