Welcome to the EDII and EDR database

The European Drought Reference (EDR) database and the European Drought Impact Report Inventory (EDII) were both compiled as part of the EU funded DROUGHT R&SPI Project. The database is designed to provide a single, publicly available site to disseminate detailed information about historical drought events in Europe. For additional information on this project and data collection, see the Project Overview.

The European Drought Reference (EDR) database and the European Drought Impact Report Inventory (EDII) are now pubicly available. You may access both through the links on the left or using the descriptions below:
