The UK Drought and Water Scarcity Research Programme is proud to announce its International Academic Conference to be held at Pembroke College, Oxford University, over 20 and 21 March 2019.

Droughts threaten societies, economies and ecosystems worldwide

They are costly natural hazards, a central risk on global risk registers, and are expected to become more severe due to the combined influence of climate change and pressure on water resources from economic and demographic changes. This conference will showcase multidisciplinary research on droughts and water scarcity.
