Launch of the GAR Special Report on Drought 2021

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 17 Jun 2021 Location: Online event

Droughts have deep, widespread and underestimated impacts on societies, ecosystems, and economies. They incur costs that are borne disproportionately by the most vulnerable people.  The extensive impacts of drought are consistently underreported even though they span large areas, cascade through systems and scales, and linger through time, affecting millions of people and contributing to food insecurity, poverty, and inequality. Climate change is increasing temperatures and disrupting rainfall patterns, increasing the frequency, severity, and duration of droughts in many regions across the globe.  As we move towards a 2˚C world, urgent action is required to better understand and more effectively manage drought risk to reduce the devastating toll on human lives and livelihoods.

The GAR Special Report on Drought explores the systemic nature of drought and its impacts on achievement of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the SDGs.

The Special Report on Drought 2021 will be launch on 17 June 2021, the World Day for Combating Desertification and Drought in conjunction with the UN Convention to Combat Desertification.

Time: 15:00 CEST
