The objectives of the DrIVER project are:
  • To compare and evaluate reported drought impacts and physical drought indicators across different geographical settings and governance systems, primarily in the USA, Europe and Australia where drought Monitoring and Early Warning systems exist.
  • To identify and compare thresholds of drought indicators that define the vulnerability of society, ecosystem services and economy.
  • To engage, through a series of strategy-game workshops, into social learning in order to explore the framings, decision-making and practices relating to drought across a range of stakeholders, and explore conflicts and trade-offs.
  • To develop pathways to drought resilience through the improvement of targeted drought Monitoring and Early Warning systems, drought management and training.
