Regional Drought Early Warning System

NIDIS Regional Drought Early Warning Systems explore and demonstrate a variety of early warning and drought risk reduction strategies that incorporate drought monitoring and prediction information in partnership with users and federal, state, regional, and local agencies.  These systems will chart a collective national pathway to inform other regions of the country to establish best practices to establish an integrated drought information system and to transfer this information to under-served regions of the country.
