A Scoping Study to Identify Research Requirements to Assist the UK Water Industry in Dealing with Changing Patterns of Drought
ISBN: 1 84057 187 X
The objective of this project was to determine the requirements for future research into the effects of changes in the occurrence of droughts across the whole range of water industry operations. The project was effected through a literature review and discussions with a range of experts and academics in the water industry. Fourteen action areas were identified where research is required.
