International Drought Symposium

International Drought Symposium

Integrating Science & Policy, Water Science & Policy Center, UC Riverside


North Cadys #4

Droughtseverely impacts all living things, including economic, agronomic, hydrological, ecological, technological, and political ways. The symposium will bring senior disciplinary experts from Spain, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, and California — all drought-prone areas — to sit together and share scientific and policy aspects related to drought and its mitigation in each of these areas.The main objective is to compare drought impacts and mitigation under various physical, economic, and institutional situations in these states, and to allow 'out of the box' approaches to be considered and adopted by the various countries.

The University of California, Riverside Libraries have many helpful resources for the study and mitigation of drought impacts.
