Research Project: Reducing Drought Impact Risk in the Intermountain West via Multiple Pathways

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 3050-11210-009-01-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Mar 20, 2018
End Date: Dec 31, 2019

Objective:
Host two drought resilience solutions workshops leading to adaptation resource development and reduced drought risk. Expand precipitation monitoring to support drought impact knowledge and USDM development. Provide USDA resources and information to reduce wind erosion.

Approach:
Propose a multilevel, solutions-based approach to address snow drought and water scarcity impacts in the southwest region by supporting information provision (to Extension and producers) via workshops, videos and website development, and continuing to expand CoCoRaHS.
