  15. 15. Drought management plan and infrastructuresThe Catalan Water Agency, therefore, aids in drawing up the Drought Management Plan, to establish aprotocol and improve the decrees on drought that have been carried out in previous years. It includes alist of actions (measure), based on certain indicators obtained (reserve levels), which should serve asthe brainchild behind the Prevention Plan for Water Drought Conditions
