About this book

Drought, Risk Management, and Policy: Decision-Making Under Uncertainty explores the complex relationship between scientific research and decision making with respect to drought in Australia and the US, as the two countries face similar issues.

Drawing on the work of academic researchers and policy practitioners in the area of the science-policy interface, it discusses the issues associated with decision making under uncertainty and the different perspectives, needs, and expectations of scientists, policy makers, and individuals.

It provides comprehensive case studies on decision making under uncertainty within the US and Australia and illustrates the challenges of evidence-based policy making with real-life examples and solutions.
