A Drought Contingency Fund (DCF) managed under the National Drought Management Authority is cushioning lives and livelihoods of communities vulnerable to drought. The DCF provides flexible set-aside financial resources that can be disbursed at short notice to respond to drought threats. Its main objective is to facilitate early mitigation efforts to reduce the time between warning of drought stress and response at county level.
