Drought Prevention Plan (PPSS) [Poland]
The Drought Prevention Plan (PPSS) is yet to be finalised, but it will be Poland’s blueprint for dealing with drought. Droughts are set to be the single most important climate change impact for Poland, particularly for the agriculture sector. While the draft PPSS has been widely consulted over a period of one year, scientists and drought experts still express serious reservations about its approach and content. The programme does not tap into the mitigation and carbon sequestration potential of nature-based solutions such as wetland restoration or river valley rewilding.
