News Kick-Off of the Network of Drought Observatories in the EU

The kick-off meeting for the Network of Drought Observatories in the EU will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art of Drought Observatories in the EU, both from a scientific/technical and from an operational point of view (Thu 16 June). Short and medium-term challenges, and needs for development will then be identified and discussed, laying out the scope and roadmap for the network (Fri 17 June). The event will offer an opportunity to engage and connect with drought experts across the EU, as well as to participate to the information gathering effort within the EDORA project.

The EDORA project aims at strengthening the European Drought Observatory (EDO), hosted by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), by enhancing drought risk assessment at different scales, aggregating data on impacts in different sectors, and fostering connections and establishment of drought observatories in the Member States. These actions will ultimately enhance the resilience and adaptation to drought across the EU, by offering a common core of operational data and knowledge about droughts.
