GDO Risk of Drought Impacts for Agriculture (RDrI-Agri) (version 2.3.1)

Collection: DROUGHT : Drought Observatories datasets 

Description

The Risk of Drought Impacts for Agriculture (RDrI-Agri) indicator that is implemented in the Global Drought Observatory (GDO) of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service, is used for determining the area more likely to be affected by droughts. Higher risk means that the areas affected will be the most likely to report impacts due to droughts. In line with the terminology of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR, 2019 & 2021), drought risk may be defined as the probability of harmful consequences or likelihood of losses resulting from the interactions between three independent determinants: drought hazard (i.e. the possible future occurrence of drought events of a certain severity), drought exposure (i.e. the total population, its livelihoods and assets in drought-prone areas), and drought vulnerability (i.e. the propensity of exposed elements to suffer adverse effects when impacted by a drought event). The drought hazard is computed like the Combined Drought Indicator available on the European Drought Observatory (CDI), based on SPI (Standardized Precipitation Index), Soil Moisture Index Anomaly and fAPAR (Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation) Anomaly.
