Description

Droughts in East Africa can have devastating impacts on agriculture, filtering directly to local populations and national level infrastructure. By bringing together a range of different observations and novel climate modelling, a new and comprehensive understanding of current and future drought risk changes from human-induced climate change will be developed by the DREAD team, and will form a launch platform to help improve communications to affected communities, to enhance preparedness and resilience strategies and to develop plans for humanitarian responses to drought hazards in these sensitive dryland regions.
