Droughts are one of the headline strategic risks to the UK. In 2012 the UK experienced the driest spring in over a century, after two dry winters. The podcasts take the form of voice narrated slides. The project is designed to capture the complexity of the water scarcity by using expertise across the social and natural sciences and with the key stakeholder involvement.
