Goals and Obectives

The primary goals for the National Drought Forum on Dec. 12-13, 2012, are to understand the extent of 2012 drought impacts and response, and help provide new information and guidance for coordination to improve the nations' drought readiness in 2013 and preparedness for future droughts. By convening high-level drought program experts and representatives from impacted regions we hope to engender a candid and enlightening conversation that will result in specific recommendations for further improving U.S. drought readiness.
