Nearly 40% of the Southwestern United States is currently experiencing the most severe drought classification (D4) conditions. On January 12, the U.S. Drought Monitor indicated that all of the Southwest was experiencing drought, and drought is expected to continue throughout the winter and into spring. This webinar will provide an update of current drought conditions and forecasts for Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Nevada, followed by a demonstration of the Collaborate Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox (CCAST), which provides case studies on how communities and individuals have successfully responded to past drought.
