Abstract: • The El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon is one of the main sources of variability in the Earth's climate; the extremes of this atmosphere-ocean coupled mode are known as the El Niño and La Niña phases. • The influence of ENSO events on the global variability of precipitation and temperature are well known. • Current interest in climate responses to variations in atmospheric circulation is mainly focused on the occurrence of extreme events (e.g. floods, droughts, heat waves) that cause major environmental, social and economic damage. • HERE WE FOCUS ON THE ENSO IMPACT ON DROUGHTS, MEASURED AT DIFFERENT TIME-SCALES, GLOBALLY.
