Drought Science and Management

This symposium brings together global experts on the processes that cause drought and their consequences.
Droughts threaten societies, economies and ecosystems worldwide with damaging effects that can lead to significant losses. Yet our ability to characterise and predict the occurrence, duration and intensity of droughts, as well as minimise their impacts, is often inadequate.
A range of expert speakers give their perspectives from both academic and practitioner viewpoints, on the impact of drought and how to manage drought risk in the UK and globally.

This event is organised and subsidised by the MaRIUS project, and forms part of the UK Droughts and Water Scarcity programme.
