About Drought Showcase

The About Drought Showcase presents a major opportunity to discover more about the outputs emerging from the £12m five-year Research Council-funded Droughts and Water Scarcity programme.

Words saying About Drought: Maximising the impact of UK research on drought and water scarcity

The Programme is aimed at supporting improved decision-making and communication in relation to droughts and water scarcity for a range of sectors, including:

  • Water suppliers, energy suppliers & regulators
  • Agricultural sector
  • Environmental policy-makers, stakeholders & regulators
  • UK Businesses, ranging from high volume industrial water users to local SMEs
  • Community planning organisations, communities, and not-for-profit special interest groups

As well as hands-on interaction with key project datasets, you will be able to ask the experts about on-going developments and give feedback on how best they can be tailored to support your area of interest. The Showcase will give the opportunity to participants to interact with other stakeholders and researchers.

The Drought and Water Scarcity programme has been underway for over three years has already led to significant advances in our understanding of the many complex, interlinked drivers of drought; the wide range of impacts and the diversity of management responses. The final phase of the Programme is now underway and, over the next 18 months, will synthesise the knowledge and outputs from the four research projects to maximise the impact of the Programme for a diverse range of stakeholders
