Nowadays, drought is still not getting enough attention at different levels in  the  region  (political, operational, general public etc.) and is still considered  to  be  a  rare  phenomenon. Recent droughts (2003, 2007, 2012, 2015,  2017,  2018,  ...)  showed that such extremes are becoming a regular feature  of  the  climate in this region. Are we also getting prepared? Has something changed over the last 10 years? Do we understand how to move from reactive to proactive approach?

On  behalf  of  EU  for Danube Region Strategy Environmental Risks Priority Area  (5)  our  Hungarian  co-coordinator  Mr. László Balatonyi gave a presentation  how  is  drought  represented  in the Danube Region Strategic documents and what are the future plans to better address that type of risk approach in the management plans.
