Beyond Drought

Drought is an insidious natural hazard with far-reaching impacts that range from economic losses to loss of agriculture and livelihood.  Drought can cause or exacerbate water, food, and national security hazards.  The GDIS is an international effort to pull together the best non-prescriptive drought information from local providers and provide an "apples to apples" comparison of drought conditions around the world.
