Drought perception and societal consequences

  • Evan Vlachos


The central emphasis of this paper is on the importance of perception in determining the extent of consequences and the range of alternatives in managing droughts. To understand responses to drought the paper outlines first the main characteristics of this periodic disaster; describes pervasive environmental conflicts and the broader implications of ecosystemic transformations; examines the shifting perceptions of drought and mechanisms of risk communication; and, relates perception and cognition with policy options in managing droughts through increased awareness, involvement and participation of all affected parties.
