The occurrence of climate change and its effects on surface water and groundwater resources along with inappropriate management of water resources have increased the vulnerability of communities. This has resulted in different strategies to reduce the effects of drought. Therefore, beyond the modification of water resources management methods, improvement of resilience is also considered as a new and successful solution to reduce the adverse effects of drought. Today, according to many experts, the resilience of communities can help in the proper management of drought in the country. In recent years, drought has caused a lot of damage to the economic structure of the country, especially the agricultural sector, and has dramatically damaged and threatened the assets and livelihoods of rural and agricultural beneficiaries. This has gradually reduced the ability of adaptation and resilience of individuals, households and local communities for livelihood. This paper tries to clarify the dimensions and scientific aspects of communities’ resilience in the face of drought conditions.
