Discussion and Results The results of the research suggests that total unemployment and loss of job opportunities and out of the agricultural sector the the highest priority of experts and those in power and officials in the villages of your sample is assigned to the case study and the incidence of mental and emotional disorders and increased migration to the cities raising the level of in the diagram curve final prioritizing risks of droughts have (according to the consequences) and In a nutshell increase the risk of drough. Conclusions Jiroft township with regard to the climatic conditions and features of the hydrological and meteorological, witnessed a drought in several times. In the rural areas did not escape the phenomenon of drought have had a high potential vulnerability to it, so in order to reduce the impact of relevant, holistic approach was required to all aspects, including economic, managerial, organizational, institutional, cultural, ecological and include policy and so on. In such a situation a Drought Risk Management or a series of measures that before it is carried out by the drought and in the course of action and surprise to the lowest possible rate observed. Because assessments undertaken in the field of drought, suggests that crisis management actions are reactions to hasty, inadequate and ineffective led. The results showed that the total unemployment and loss of job opportunities and out of the agricultural sector the highest priority of experts and those in power and officials in the villages of your sample is assigned to the case study and the incidence of mental and emotional disorders and increased migration to the cities raising the level of in the diagram curve final prioritizing risks of droughts have (according to the consequences) and In a nutshell increase the risk of drought. Therefore, the priority actions should be based on addressing these issues in the region. The first steps should be to reduce unemployment, to prevent the loss of jobs and made out of agriculture caused by drought, Further in this regard should be the most vulnerable areas of the region are identified and measures to inform and to be more prepared in this area. The results can be combined with the results of the estimate of damage in the region and the measures to be taken in the right place. Due to this that all measures for the entire region is essential, taking advantage of the risk management model can be used makes it possible to build up to prioritize actions, right where the greatest need to run there, and ultimately doing vulnerability reduced drought against the villagers.
