The People’s World Commission on Drought and Flood (PWCDF)

The People's World Commission on Drought and Flood (PWCDF) was established on the occasion of World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden. Under the Chairmanship of Stockholm Water Awardee and Magsaysay winner, Dr Rajendra Singh, popularly known as the Waterman of India, the goal is to reduce risks to lives, livelihoods, and ecosystems by building community resilience to extreme weather events such as droughts and floods through community-driven nature rejuvenation.

Mission and Goal

The PWCDF aims to reduce climate risks of droughts and floods and build resilient communities and economies through community-centered nature rejuvenation. Moreover, it intends to bridge the gaps between policy, science, knowledge, and community action by bringing together communities, scientists, engineers, technocrats, environmentalists, ecologists, social activists, hydrologists, youth and other stakeholders to reduce impact of droughts and floods and build resilience at ground level.

Some of the ways to do so will be by preparing an annual report to provide a summary of the state of floods and droughts and encourage students to adopt more environmentally conscious.
