Drought Risk and Decision Making
Droughts threaten societies, economies and ecosystems worldwide. Yet our ability to characterise and predict the occurrence, duration and intensity of droughts, as well as minimise their impacts, is often inadequate.

This symposium brings together global experts and will showcase multidisciplinary research being undertaken on droughts from across the world. There are three themes:

-UK Drought Science and Policy
-Understanding the social dimensions of drought
-Drought Science and Policy from around the world

-Professor Jim Hall, University of Oxford, UK
-Professor Lee Godden, Melbourne University, Australia
-Professor Casey Brown, University of Massachusetts, United States
-Professor Christopher Duffy, Penn State University, United States
-Professor Greg Garfin, University of Arizona, United States
-Dr Peter Wallbrink, CSIRO, Australia
