Goals and Objectives

  • Take stock of lessons learned and progress towards U.S. drought readiness since the last Forum in 2012;
  • Strengthen the state-federal relationship to realize greater collaboration and promote cooperative partnerships with U.S. businesses to address drought across time scales and across levels of government and sectors;
  • Discuss new information and opportunities for coordination that help move the Nation from a reactive to a proactive approach to drought risk management; and
  • Produce a list of “action items” that could improve U.S. drought readiness and resilience
