The Plan for the Midwest Drought Early Warning System (DEWS) will help identify gaps and needs within the region through a consultative process, which can be used to direct NIDIS and other federal agency funding as well as justify other investments. The partner input sessions will ensure that the Plan accurately represents the needs of regional partners.
The webinar and update is designed to provide stakeholders and other interested parties in the region with timely information on the current drought status and outlook, as well as the wildland fire potential outlook.
The webinar, funded by NIDIS and hosted by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) Water Policy Center, will welcome state and local experts for a panel discussion on how to reduce drought impacts for the most vulnerable sectors.
The workshop brought together a diverse community to share developments in research and application of weather and climate information for societal decision-making.
In this role, Weight joins seven other experts from around the world who together will work to improve drought preparedness, drought resilience, user engagement, and drought policy for agriculture, globally.
