Improving Drought Governance in European Regions - DROP Field Research

Between September and November 2013, Ecologic Institute researchers were part of a team that visited five areas of North-West Europe to assess regional drought governance frameworks in the field. Whereas drought is as yet a rare phenomenon in northern Europe, climate change projections suggest increasing impacts with important consequences for agriculture, drinking water provision, and the environment. The team, in which Ecologic Institute was joined by four other research institutes, used a Governance Assessment Tool specifically developed for researching drought in its stakeholder interviews. This tool is available for download.

Climate Change, Water Conflicts and Human Security

Regional Assessment and Policy Guidelines for the Mediterranean, Middle East and Sahel
Climate change has and will continue to have far-reaching impacts on environmental, social and economic conditions.

This report presents a comprehensive regional assessment of these questions in the CLICO study area – the Mediterranean, Middle East, and Sahel - and is available for download.Read more
