This animation is brought to you through a collaboration between the University of West England, the University of Warwick and the University of Gloucestershire animation department - where the film was directed and animated by Rachel Deebank in consultation with Joanne Garde-Hansen and Ivan Grove.
This animation is part of a series of drought stories that capture different perspectives and scenarios on UK drought and can be used for education purposes. The ideas expressed in the story and the factual material and data are inspired by the drought science modelling and agricultural experiments with quinoa by the project research team of the Drought Risk and You Project.
The Drought Risk and You Project is funded by the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Biotechnical and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
