Kick-off meeting held of the Network of Drought Observatories in the EU

Droughts pose increasing risks in Europe and are an ever-bigger cause for concern as their impacts are being more frequently and severely felt across different sectors. The Copernicus CEMS European and Global Drought Observatories (EDO and GDO) monitor and forecast droughts at the European and Global scale. A two-day kick-off meeting in June 2022 welcomed around 120 participants from 29 countries, and highlighted how efforts to monitor and forecast droughts have been scaled up in the wake of recent droughts in the EU and beyond.
