Drought is a natural disaster that occurs slowly and lasts longer until the wet season occurred. Drought occurred in expected time, so that preparations and preparedness can be made in dealing with drought disasters. Therefore, we need an overview of future drought events (or projections).In this study, Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) was used as drought index. The occurrence of drought is closely related to weather factors and occurs repeatedly. Time-series weather data is needed to know the time-series weather conditions. Problems with data that often occur can be overcome by using numerical climate modeling which is currently widely used. Regional Climate Model (RCM) is a climate model that can be used to build long-term climate data, both time-series and projection data. The results showed RCM model data required bias correction in order to reduce bias in the CORDEX RCM model data. RCM rainfall models before correction were still biased. Thus, bias correction is needed to reduce bias in models data. Time series obtained from SPI baseline data for 2000-2005 in Lampung and West Sumatra provinces showed SPI value which smaller than the projection SPI value in 2021-2030. While SPI time series with RCP 4.5 and 8.5 scenarios showed different results. SPI with RCP 8.5 scenario have more negative value so that drought occurred more often than RCP 4.5. The negative SPI index that often occured in RCP 8.5 scenario appeared to be in RCM IPSL and MPI models year 2025-2030.
