U.S. Drought Portal Provides Communities with Real-time Maps of Current Drought Conditions

Many Tribal Nations are located in arid and semi-arid regions of the Southwest and the Plains, which are particularly affected by a drying climate. The National Integrated Drought Information System and its U.S. Drought Portal support drought resiliency. The U.S. Drought Monitor complements these efforts by providing real-time maps of current drought conditions. Drought planning resources, products, and tools have been strengthened recently by the new National Drought Resilience Partnership, which makes it easier for communities to access drought assistance by promoting strong partnerships and information sharing at all levels of government. Some Tribal Nations are utilizing these resources to develop proactive drought plans that incorporate regional climate impacts analysis.
