Correction to: Nature Climate Change, published online 3 February 2022.

In the version of this article initially published, there were typographical errors in the main text. In the third sentence of the “Increasing exposure to compound droughts” section, the text now reading, in part, “droughts during 2071–2100 and 2031–2060, respectively,” replaces “droughts during 2031–2060 and 2071–2100, respectively.” In the Methods “Compound drought characteristics” section, sixth sentence, now reading in part “(less than around −1.65 in CESM and –1.66 in CanESM2),” the minus sign before 1.66 replaces an approximately symbol in the original.

The changes have been made to the HTML and PDF versions of the article.
