EDO User Meeting 2017

The EDO User Meeting 2017 was held at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra (VA), Italy. The meeting convened experts from river basin commissions, national and international meteorological services, national water boards, regional and national drought management centres, private entities, and the JRC, to discuss the development, status and future evolution of EDO and of the related Global Drought Observatory (GDO).

During the meeting regional, national and local drought monitoring and forecasting systems were presented, and the potential links to EDO were discussed. Besides the technical and scientific aspects of drought monitoring and forecasting, the discussions centred on stakeholders’ requirements and expectations, and their involvement in the continued development of EDO, for example, through a network of partners and experts. The need to develop sustainable monitoring and forecasting systems at various scales, their inter-linkages and synergies, as well as important existing gaps in available data and information (e.g. a lack of standardised information on drought impacts) were highlighted.
