In general, drought is a temporal reduction of environmental moisture status relative to the mean state. Because of the complexity of drought, it is often studied only by separate aspects of the phenomenon (e.g. meteorological drought, soil drought, etc.). Hence, approaches to

Moreover, the vulnerability of rainfed crop production systems to drought is worsened by soil degradation, low resilience levels due to poverty and inability to implement effective risk mitigation strategies (FAO ).

An urgent humanitarian crisis has gripped the Sahel, where more than 18 million people are currently at risk of food insecurity and hunger. Poor rains last year and a resulting drought has plunged a huge swatch of land in the Sahel into crisis.
