This in-person regional gathering will bring together Northeast Drought Early Warning System (DEWS) partners for the first time in several years to share and discuss ongoing drought-related activities, learn about new and innovative drought research and resources, and explore emerging issues and opportunities. The main goal will be to identify collaborative paths forward that advance drought early warning and preparedness in this region. Specific topics that will be addressed include:

  • Utilizing information on drought impacts to inform drought monitoring and decision making.

Participants will leave with tangible materials, collaboratively developed, to enhance existing activities, design and implement new efforts, and address barriers related to drought planning and preparedness. In addition, partners will jointly identify research and opportunities that the partners and the broader DEWS network can utilize to address drought across the region.
