Drought is a natural hazard caused by the variability in climate, which cannot be prevented. However, its effects can be reduced through management systems incorporating drought monitoring. The main aim of this paper is the presentation of information system for monitoring drought warning based on the model with optimal set of hydro-meteorological parameters: minimal number, availability of gauge data and spatial distribution of measuring locations. Monitoring the relevant hydro-meteorological parameters and creation of suitable forecast tools within a hydro-information system for monitoring drought warning would serve as a platform for decision making in drought effects reduction. Significance of this idea is in the substitution of complex climatological models. It requires time and maintenance investments with a practical method for estimation of drought duration and intensity which will satisfy the users' needs and will not require considerable economic investment.
