  19. 19. Conclusions 19 SIP approach highlights that physical measure such as irrigation alone can not solve the drought problem. It gives emphasis on the execution of institutional role towards drought such as translating drought risk reduction policy at local to national level, effective water management activities, and networking among GOs, NGOs and other institutions The DAP, as the outcome of farmer’s adaptive practices, requires institutionalization and broader stakeholders dialogue to strengthen the linkage between community and national government The drought risk management policy and action framework developed in this study brings together both community and national government in identifying time frame and responsibilities, thus strengthening the link between the DAP to national policy Kyoto University International Environment and Disaster Management Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies

Another prictice was kept in blank for the farmer to find out any additional option coming from them For example: Taking preventive measure •What kind of preventive measures are taken to face drought during the drought period?
