National Drought Mitigation Center


How can we help you prepare for drought?

July 17, 2013

Help shape how we collect, store and distribute good ideas for coping with drought by joining a webinar on Thursday, July 25, noon-1 p.m. central time. The National Drought Mitigation Center will solicit comments on a Drought Mitigation Database that is under development, and the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) Program Office will provide an update.

The NIDIS Engaging Preparedness Communities (EPC) webinar will be moderated by Deborah Bathke from the NDMC. Cody Knutson, NDMC, and Kelly Helm Smith, NDMC, will be the main speakers. The webinar will be interactive and will include a Q&A session.

If you have a moment, we invite you to review the new Drought Mitigation Database in advance:

A main question to consider while you are reviewing the new tool is:

How can we make the new drought management database and related products and tools as effective as possible in helping agencies and individuals prepare for drought?
