The main objective of this study is to prepare a drought mitigation investment plan informed by a comprehensive assessment of climate induced drought risks for Sindh province. Identification of drought prone areas at regional and local scales as well as adaptive and mitigation interventions will be recommended based on scientific drought assessment. Along with other methods, this study will explore the remote sensing potential in terms of data and methods in order to quantify drought and assess drought features. Satellite data driven quantitative and spatio-temporal approach will be investigated for the development of the study resulting in data that could be used for generating climate change scenarios through the Global Climate Change Model.
