Food production,
particularly rice, has been one of the major concerns in Indonesia. Primary
threats to production include agricultural land conversion and climate change.
In this paper, a GIS-based approach is presented to assess agricultural
drought. This approach was developed using the water balance technique, which
accounts for spatial population data. We found that agricultural fields in the
Upper Bengawan Solo basin were fairly vulnerable to drought, mainly due to
expanding Surakarta (Solo) city.
