NIDIS, in partnership with the Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC), is establishing a Midwest DEWS Communication Working Group that will include representatives from multiple states, sectors, and government/private/academic entities. The goal of this working group will be to determine and establish effective modes of communication to the broader Midwest DEWS network, with particular focus on the content, audience, frequency, and relevance of these new modes of communication. This working group will also identify ways to sustain these regular forms of communication even when drought may not be occuring. In addition, this working group will provide added capacity for existing communication and outreach to stakeholders (i.e., monthly webinars and quarterly briefings).
