Drought impact wisdom for the Alpine Space Region

The EDIIAlps database provides a new basis for understanding the range of historical impacts. Please take a look at the data and read the publications:

Drought impact probability: mapping and progress to prediction

The impact data also allows impact-based drought modelling with ADO’s drought monitoring indices. Here are first results (also partially available as maps on the ADO platform https://ado.eurac.edu/)

Methods for drought risk assessment and economic impacts

Drought risk consists of the hazard as well as the exposure and vulnerability - these are considered in our work on impact-chains and methods for economic drought impact assessment in selected case study regions. Please read details in the following presentations and publications:
