Drought caused due to deficiency of rainfall is a complex natural hazard. Unlike other environmental disasters, it starts slowly, has a long duration and covers a vast area. In India, it upsets the country’s food security by seriously affecting our agricultural economy, which is heavily dependent on monsoon. The Government of India has declared seventy six districts of the country as drought prone. Drought causes economic, social and environmental loss quite frequently. Management of drought needs proper storage and usage of rain and ground water in drought prone areas.
