By publishing the video “Stop suszy” (Stop the Drought), we intend to initiate a public discussion about drought in Poland. We have scrutinised the phenomenon with the help of the research conducted for the purposes of the “Stop the Drought!” programme.

On 24 July, the Warsaw-Boulevards water gauge showed that the level of Vistula was only 41 cm. On most of Polish rivers, the low levels of water are observed. What is the reason for this situation? The lack of snow cover in winter, low rainfall and high temperatures, i.e. the drought. The Polish Waters work intensively to prevent its effects.
The work on the plan for counteracting the effects of drought is entering the consultation phase.
