The first introductory webinar & lecture provide a general overview of the objectives of GlobeDrought. It will discuss the relevance of understanding and assessing drought risk and its sectoral impacts in order to create more resilience societies, and link this debate to relevant policy frameworks (e.g. Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, SDGs, UNCCD Drought Initiative, etc.).

What is a drought, how can it be characterized, why does it matter globally (past events & impacts, future outlook), what is drought risk, what are key components, why do we need to understand and assess drought risk? How is this linked to policy (UNCCD perspective)?
