    Abstract In recent years d roughts have had increasing impacts on various interconnected socio economic sectors and ecosystems throughout the EU. Impacts are projected to further increase under anthropogenic climate change for many sectors and regions. Structural collaboration between different Drought Observatories , impacted sectors and experts is necessar y to enha n ce technical and scientific support for plans and measures to increase drought resilience and adaptation in the EU, especially with respect to developing common assessment approaches and enhancing data collection. The European Drought Impact Data base (EDID) provides an inventory of direct and cascading drought impacts in Europe and is an instrument for data collection. The EDID sets the ground for a systematic monitoring of drought impacts and further designing impact mitigating water management s trategies. The European Drought Risk Atlas maps hotspots and risk drivers across different systems and regions of the EU. It builds on conceptual risk models (impact chains) and on innovative quantitative drought risk assessment, as a further step towards impact driven drought risk assessment.
