Drought and water scarcity in the UK? Is drought and water scarcity really problems in the UK? What is the difference between the two?
It is widely known that the South East of England is a region with very limited water resources, but overall the understanding of drought and water scarcity in the UK is very limited. To improve the knowledge about drought and water scarcity in the UK the Nature and Environmental Research Council (NERC) is funding a research programme that commenced in 2014, it is presented on their website.
