Broadening our knowledge of the characteristics of drought-prone areas and the impact of drought events on vulnerable communities is crucial to realizing this objective.

Indeed, the identification of hotspot areas, where drought episodes are likely to reoccur, and their characteristics helps authorities and communities to timely detect. The soils in the rice-growing areas of central and southern Laos are dominated by Acrisols ().These soils are strongly weathered, have a clay-enriched subsoil, contain mostly low-activity clay minerals, and have a low base saturation (Cited by: different states in India.
