The general objective of the Programme is to contribute to increasing resilience and adaptation to climate change, by strengthening the capacity to prevent and manage crisis situations arising from droughts and other extreme natural events, consolidating the country's sustainable development efforts in socio-economic, and environmental spheres. Its specific objectives are: Strengthen the mobilization of drinking water to improve its supply to the population and to agriculture, especially in the areas most affected by the reduction of water levels in aquifers and by water stress. Ensure conditions for the maintenance of production systems in the field of agriculture and livestock, making them more adapted to new agro-ecological conditions, especially with regard to water management for irrigation, feed for livestock and control of pests and diseases. Strengthen the resilience of rural communities, guaranteeing the income and food security conditions of the families most affected by the drought.
