GWPF Factsheet 1 Drought
Data shows no trending increase in the frequency of severity of droughts.
From the Fact Sheet:
The IPCC says it is hard to say (‘low confidence’) whether global drought has become better or worse since 1950.
Figures from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show no trend in the proportion of the globe in drought since 1950. Others have suggested a decline in drought levels in recent decades.
