2019 National Integrated Drought Information System Annual Report
The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) is excited to release our first Annual Report to provide insight into the many accomplishments of the program over the previous year and the opportunities that lie ahead. Milestones in 2019 included the NIDIS Reauthorization Act being signed into law in January, the publication of two reports examining the devastating 2017 Northern Plains drought in May, and NIDIS co-hosting the second National Drought Forum in July. These and many other achievements made for a year filled with advances in drought information delivery, research, and partnership-building, all of which we hope you enjoy learning more about in this report.
