About International Drought Resilience Alliance (IDRA)

IDRA Launch event on Nov 7, 2022 at COP27

Fostering high-impact collaborations

IDRA brings together high-ambition stakeholders in regions that are particularly vulnerable to drought. Par-ticipants share knowledge and experiences, reinforce their capacities, and mobilize financial and non-finan-cial resources for drought resilience, leveraging IDRA’s global network. In parallel, IDRA helps its members raise the political profile of drought resilience, placing it at the core of the sustainable development agenda and urging whole-of-government and whole-of-society approaches.

IDRA also works hand in hand with the Intergovernmental Working Group on Drought (IWG), established by UNCCD member states in 2022. The IWG’s purpose is to identify and evaluate global policy instruments and regional policy frameworks and link them to national plans to manage drought under the Convention, supporting a shift towards proactive drought management. The IWG shall present its recommendations for long-term resilience ahead of the Conference of Parties in 2024.

A growing membership 

The impacts of drought on people’s lives are devastating. But through ingenuity, commitment, and solidarity, we can build a drought-resilient future.


As a global coalition of more than 30 countries and 20 institutions, IDRA draws on the collective strengths of its members to advance policies, actions, and capacity-building for a drought-resilient future. With the con-tinuous expansion of its membership and the dedication of its diverse stakeholders, IDRA remains steadfast in its pursuit of a world where the worst impacts of drought are avoided, communities and economies thrive, and ecosystems flourish.
