Drought and Drought Mitigation in Europe
Edited by Jürgen V. Vogt and Francesca Somma2000355pp.$130.00
Drought is one of the major natural hazards, resulting in significant economic, social, and environmental costs. In Europe, water shortage is an important problem in many regions.
However, despite the increasing awareness of this hazard, there are no European drought policies, and institutional frameworks to cope with drought are weak. This book is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the drought problem in Europe and discusses policy and management options to mitigate its impacts. It covers topics that range from the detection of water stress to the planning of mitigation strategies.
