About Drought - Maximising the impact of UK research on drought & water security
Dry riverbed

7 November 2019 (Thursday)
The Royal Society, London

Come along to explore the final products from across the programme, including not only the progression of research on drought forecasting, monitoring, prediction, risk, impact assessment and communication, but also the numerous multidisciplinary resources, tools, and datasets that have been developed, and in many cases, rolled out to various sectors.

See the draft programme (PDF, 250KB), so you can plan to attend this accessible, stimulating day, where visitors will be able to engage with hands-on multi-disciplinary programme outputs, as well as being able to listen to and question programme experts in a wide range of drought-related fields, network with people in the drought faculty (researchers and managers), and engage first-hand with users of the outputs from the programme.

The day will start at 10:00 and end at 15:30, followed by a networking hour. The event is fully funded through the DWS programme.

Feedback received on the DWS programme so far:

"About Drought has helped generate a step change in thinking around what is possible and what can be done, and over the next 10 years or so we will be making better decisions, using better tools because of it." National Water Resources Planning Framework
