  • Fostering and supporting a research environment focusing on risk assessment, planning, forecasting, monitoring, impact collection and analysis, and mitigation.
  • Contributing to a drought early warning information system to provide accurate, timely, and integrated information specific to regional needs and economic sectors.
  • Developing content and interactive components for the U.S. Drought Portal (drought.gov), as part of the drought early warning information system.
  • Providing a framework for public awareness and education about droughts and high precipitation events that ameliorate or terminate droughts.
