UK Droughts & Water Scarcity
Droughts and water scarcity jointly pose a substantial threat to the environment, agriculture, infrastructure, society and culture in the UK, yet our ability to characterise and predict their occurrence, duration and intensity, as well as minimise their impacts, is often inadequate.
The UK Droughts & Water Scarcity research programme is a five-year interdisciplinary, £12m+ NERC programme in collaboration with ESRC, EPSRC, BBSRC and AHRC. It will support improved decision-making in relation to droughts and water scarcity by providing research that identifies, predicts and responds to the interrelationships between their multiple drivers and impacts.
The programme's research will be UK-focused, and will contribute to NERC's natural hazards and climate system strategic science themes. More about the UK Droughts & Water Scarcity research programme
