Drought hub: Your Resource for understanding drought challenges

Droughts and water scarcity jointly pose a substantial threat to the environment, agriculture, infrastructure, society and culture in the UK, yet our ability to characterise and predict their occurrence, duration and intensity, as well as minimise their impacts, is often inadequate. The UK Droughts & Water Scarcity research programme was a five-year interdisciplinary, £12 million+ NERC programme in collaboration with ESRC, EPSRC, BBSRC and AHRC. It aimed and in its legacy continues to support improved decision-making in relation to droughts and water scarcity by providing research that identifies, predicts and responds to the interrelationships between their multiple drivers and impacts. About Drought provides access to all the outputs of the UK Droughts & Water Scarcity programme.
