Assessing the agricultural drought risks for principal rainfed crops due to changing climate scenarios using satellite estimated rainfall in Africa

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

The paper discusses the conceptualization of drought and proceeds with analysing drought risk management which includes risk assessment and modelling based on spatial technology in Malawi, Niger, Mozambique and Kenya.

The author concludes that it is essential to extend the proposed methodology to other rain-fed crops in the selected countries and other drought-prone regions, in order to establish a country's agricultural drought risk profile. This process would help for reliable planning, monitoring and evaluation of adaptation measures.

This document is a background paper for the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
