The FRIEND/AMIGO working group is a regional branch of the global FRIEND programme. It aims to generate regional databases, build a global network for collaborative research and data exchange, conduct research on regional water resources, water-related disasters (such as floods and droughts), global change and water cycle, and promote water education.
FRIEND/AMIGO supports the IHP group dedicated to the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region in setting up regional networks for hydrological data analysis by sharing data, knowledge and techniques.
Main research question :
How can better meteorological and climatological information enhance our understanding of drought evolution in LAC region ?
