The Water, Climate and Development Programme (WACDEP) has been created to support the integration of water security and climate change adaptation into development planning processes and the design of financing and investment strategies. In fact, water is the principal medium through which people, ecosystems and economies will experience the impacts of climate change. WACDEP can enable successfull planning for better water use in a world that would otherwise be severely affected by climate change and poor development planning. Read more.

The Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM) is a joint initiative of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and GWP. It promotes the concept of Integrated Flood Management (IFM) as a new approach to flood management with the aim of efficiently using floodplains and minimizing losses of life from flooding. The Programme aims to combine IWRM principles into flood management practices and vice versa. The Programme has established the HelpDesk for Integrated Flood Management.
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO)-GWP Integrated Drought Management Programme (IDMP) focusing on enhancing drought resilience (in collaboration with the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, and others). This programme builds on the success of the WMO-GWP Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM), and will establish a HelpDesk similar to that available for Integrated Flood Management.
