Anti drought measures

Drought is beginning to manifest ever more intensely in our territory, it is a threat not only for agriculture and water sources but it afflicts practically all sectors of the economy – especially power (cooling water for power plants). These maps clearly show which regions of the Czech Republic are most at risk from agricultural drought (lack of soil moisture) and which from hydrological drought, i.e. a lack of water.


The MoA has actively taken part in setting up the “Interdepartmental committee WATER-DROUGHT” (2014), has ensured measures and programmes to mitigate the negative impacts of drought and water scarcity (2016) and was the main processor of the Concept of Protection against the Consequences of drought for the Czech Republic (2017).The MoA has created 12 subsidy programmes that directly lead to reducing the consequences of dry periods. The programmes will be implemented in 3 stages (2016–2021, 2022–2027, and 2027–2033). The assumed financial demands for the first stage are CZK 13.6 bn. from the state budget and CZK 4.31 bn. from investors’ funds.

Currently, 8 out of 12 subsidy programmes have already been launched, these are primarily subsidies to support irrigation and the construction of small water reservoirs for municipalities, many applicants expressed an immediate interest in the first round of calls.
