The three day conference objectives were: to share experiences in responding to emergencies of drought and floods, explore existing gaps in policy and institutional structures that hinder building resilience to avoid disasters from such events, as well as learn from various initiatives what else is required to enhance coordination among the various key players. KIPPRA also shared results from comprehensive survey undertaken to bring out the economic costs of drought and floods occurrences, coping mechanism adopted by affected communities, role and coordination of various key players in supporting to build resilience, policy and institutional gaps.
