New Publication Outlines Steps for Drought Planning

A new publication, “Planning and Drought”, offers a comprehensive guide for citizens, planners, and communities to explore what drought is, how to track it, its impacts, and how planners and communities can prepare to mitigate its effects.  The publication includes eight case studies illustrating the range of drought’s consequences and how different organizations have prepared for and responded to them.  This publication is the result of a partnership between the American Planning Association, the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the National Integrated Drought Information System.  To learn more and access the publication, visit:  http://www.drought.gov/drought/content/resources/planning-home.
