Project description

Drought-R&SPI will enhance the understanding of the: 

  1. Drought as a natural hazard, incl. climate drivers, drought generating processes and occurrences
  2. Environmental and socio-economic impacts, and 
  3. Vulnerabilities, risks and policy responses, incl. the further development of drought management plans in support of EU and other international policies, e.g. UN/ISDR-HFA.

The project will address the past and future climate, link science and science policy dialogue across scales and across a range of affected sectors.
