The Drought Chapter of GAR13

In coordination with UNISDR’s Risk Knowledge Section, LTS worked with Save the Children to generate innovative drought risk analysis by developing key recommendations to be presented in GAR13 by collating and analysing at least 9 recent peer reviewed or grey literature, highlighting the latest findings to fit the GAR report analysis 2 days prior to the meeting and 3 days after the meeting; contributing to the development of the zero order of the drought chapter of GAR13; and analysing the comments received after first peer review. The preliminary findings of this analysis were presented as part of the thematic focus of the 2013 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction. Vulnerability of rural livelihoods to natural hazards and increased exposure of agricultural production and supply chains have to be viewed against the backdrop of recent trends in the global economy, including the liberalisation of trade, high price volatility of food in global markets and the securitisation of commodities, including agricultural products.
