Science+ meeting organised by Professor Jim Hall FREng, Mr Jamie Hannaford and Professor Gabriele Hegerl FRS.
The impacts of droughts on people and the natural environment are increasing, due to climate change and over-exploitation of water resources. This Science+ meeting will explore scientific understanding of changing drought risk and examine drought impacts on the environment, people and the economy. Policy-makers, practitioners and scientists will discuss policy options for management of droughts in the future.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
