GlobeDrought aims to develop a web-based information system for comprehensively characterising drought events. The project will produce a spatially explicit description of drought risks by considering three components: drought hazard, exposure and vulnerability. It will investigate how droughts impact water resources, crop productivity, trade in food products and the need for international food aid.

|Approach and work plan
|We are going to analyse the development of different types of drought, their impacts and factors that help to buffer hydrological and agricultural systems against drought.|
