    Assessing drought around the world

    As worldwide drought impacts rise across the globe there is a high demand for guidelines and tools to assess drought hazards, impacts, and risk. This website provides such guidelines as well as an online catalogue of existing drought hazard and risk tools for the main impacted sectors: agriculture, hydro-power, industries and municipal water supply, ecology, and population.


This website is an online catalogue of drought hazard and risk tools, supplemented with a report describing the underlying comprehensive global inventory that was done to create the catalogue.


Currently, the drought catalogue contains over 200 drought risk tools available worldwide: drought hazard and risk tools, ranging from drought indices and datasets to online platforms, newsletters, and software products.
