Entry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_DROUGHT_PELRD


Summary
Abstract: Global Drought Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles is a 2.5 minute grid of drought hazard economic loss as proportions of Gross Domestic Product

(GDP) per analytical unit. Estimates of GDP at risk are based on regional economic loss rates derived from historical records of the Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT). Loss rates are

weighted by the hazard's frequency and distribution. The ... View entire text
