Drought 2015-16 has affected more than 330 million people in more than 2.5 lakh villages of 266 districts from 11 states in India. It has had a devastating impact on people’s lives as it affected water availability, agriculture, livelihoods, food production and food security, natural resources and also put a huge burden on exchequer.

ActionAid India, along with many other civil society organisations, has come up with a citizens’ report on impact of drought that captures the crisis and the response to it.
