The Arizona Drought Monitoring Technical Committee seeks to engage community members, researchers, natural resource professionals, metals and mining professionals, recreation and tourism professionals, and agriculture professionals to build a network of stakeholders that will share information about drought impacts in Arizona. The Committee also shares drought impacts with the authors of the U.S. Drought Monitor, helping to provide a clearer perspective of drought in the State.
Currently, the Arizona Drought Monitoring Technical Committee needs more representatives from all sectors and regions of the state to share their observations of drought. Those interested in drought monitoring were invited to attend a virtual workshop on December 2, 2021 to learn about and discuss:
- Ways to evaluate, measure, and report drought
- Current and projected conditions through winter 2022
- Available tools for analyzing and reporting drought.
