  6. 6. Definitions Hazard physical conditions that has the potential for causing damage to life, health, property or environment Vulnerability a condition resulting from social, economic, and environmental factors or processes, which increases the susceptibility of a system to the impact of a hazard (drought) Risk a combination of the likelihood of occurrence (HAZARD) and the magnitude of the unwanted consequences (VULNERABILITY) Ongoing work
  7. 7. Jianping Yan, 2010 System Vulnerability is the property of an anthropogenic system that can be defined by the susceptibility, coping capacity, and resilience of the system. Element Vulnerability refers to the degree of potential physical damage to the target elements at risk, such as particular crop spiece, water users, forrest biota in response to a hazard event of a given intensity. Drought risk assessment Ongoing work Sector- based risk assessment
  8. 8. The work is dedicated to a risk assessment of recognized key sectors vulnerable to drought in the participating countries (LT, PL RO): sector hazard assessment category of impact Agriculture (Act. 5.1) SPI, HTC), PET, PDSI, CWB, EDI, Aridity Index, NDWI, fAPAR, NDVI, CWSI, LAI Economic (losses in crops, decline in relevant food production) Water resources SRI, Flow Index (from FDC), NDWI Social (public safety, health, conflicts between water users, reduced quality of life) Forestry (Act. 5.2) Forest fire risk index, temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, moisture of forest litter Environmental (increased incidence of fires, damage to animal and plant species) Drought hazard assessment is based upon the indicices applicable to the participating countries (LT, PL RO) • Selection of drought hazard indicies (region/sector) • Identification of drought hazard assessment methods, • Identification of impact and vulnerability estimation methods, • Integration input information for the need of risk analysis. Drought hazard and vulnerability assessment Ongoing work
  9. 9. 1. DROUGHT FREQUENCY ANALYSIS The purpose of the frequency analysis is to determine the frequency and severity of droughts and graphically represent the spatial distribution of drought occurrences. The SPI method is designed to be flexible in terms of drought duration specified by users. Short time scales (e.g., 3 months) may be important for agricultural practices while long time scales (e.g., one year or longer) may be vital for water supply management interests. Maps representing spatial distribution of the probabilty of occurence and duration drought of different severity . The resultant frequency data are intended for integration with the results of the drought vulnerability analysis to identify areas subject to drought risk. (1) Drought frequency analysis (HAZARD), (2) Assessment of drought impact on a given area (EXPOSURE), (3) Vulnerability analysis (ELEMENT VULNERABILITY) (4) Integration of these components to a form risk maps (RISK) Risk mapping Ongoing work
  10. 10. 2. GIS-BASED ASSESSMENT OF DROUGHT IMPACT AREAS Data sources: The meteorological conditions: precipitation, temperature, wind, slope exposure, relative humidity, cloud cover, and evaporation and transpiration data. The environmental conditions: geology, slope, soil types, vegetation types and coverage, water resources. The land use and management data: crop information and farming practices for crop and livestock, livestock population inventories. The infrastructure conditions: population settlements and communities, hotels and tourist zones, dams and storage reservoirs, desalinization and water treatment plants, waste water treatment facilities, irrigation and water distribution systems, water catchment systems. - Identifying & categorizing elements at risk: crop type; forest biota; population, etc. - Inventory mapping: – Resolution and seasonality – Data format – Analysis unit Ongoing work Risk mapping
  11. 11. Developing Vulnerability Functions for Drought Risk Assessment - Loss-Intensity Matrix for Drought - Vulnerability Functions 3. VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS Vulnerability functions are created to calculate potential damage or loss to a given element at risk against a specified event intensity. drought severity (Intensity&duration) lossratio Ongoing work Risk mapping Jianping Yan, 2010 based onTsakiris et al., 2010
  12. 12. water resources sector: 1) water supply locations; 2) population demographic information; 3) drought hazard map based on SRI Exmaples of the combination of GIS leyers regarding the risk assessment for: agricutural sector: 1) land use; 2) crop type; 3) population demographic information; 4) drought hazard map based on SPI The risk assessment involves both GIS data-gathering and data creation so as to compile asset layers and analytical layers for a visual presentation of risk. GIS offers the ability to integrate many different types of data through the use of common geography. Each feature is linked to a position on the graphical image of a map. Layers of data are organized to be studied and to perform statistical or spatial analysis. GISs allow users to analyze geographic phenomena within areas of interest, thus leading to a better understanding of relationships and to provide a helpful tool in decision-making. The combination and content of leyers depends on purpose. This analysis include methods to overlay, query, highlight, and select layers that are determined as being critical to the examination of the potential vulnerability of the drought impact sectors. The analysis consisted of deriving new maps of the likely occurrence or magnitude of a particular phenomenon based on the established relationship between the existing maps layers. Ongoing work Risk mapping 4. INTEGRATION TO FORM OF RISK MAPS
  13. 13. 4. INTEGRATION OF THESE COMPONENTS TO FORM OF RISK MAPS The integrated risk can be represented by a two-dimensional matrix that classifies risks into three categories (low, moderate, high) based on the combined effects of their likelihood (HAZARD) and consequence (VULNERABILITY). Ongoing work Risk mapping
