As water scarcity becomes worrying in the Alps and in the lowland areas that receive their water, it becomes increasingly urgent that the Alpine countries define common strategies to act on this issue.

This will help Alpine local and regional governments improve the efficiency of their drought management and their ability to face related risks.
