California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System Strategic Plan
The California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (DEWS) Strategic Plan outlines priority tasks and activities that build upon existing stakeholder networks to improve drought early warning capacity and long-term resilience in California and Nevada. It includes a list of current partners, outcomes, and key milestones. This Plan is a “living document” to which additional actions and partners may be added as needed.
Dedicated partners across California and Nevada contributed to the development of the California-Nevada Strategic Plan, including federal, tribal, state, local, academic, and non-profit organizations and entities such as the California-Nevada Climate Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) team; the Desert Research Institute (DRI); and NOAA’s Western Regional Climate Center (WRCC).
