Virtual Northwest Drought Workshop: Session One

The USDA Northwest Climate Hub and National Drought Mitigation Center are hosting a Northwest Drought Workshop via three virtual sessions in July 2020.

The first session will be held on 28 July from 8 am - 11 am PT. Participants will:

  • Learn about the U.S. Drought Monitor, including how it is made each week
  • Hear from local experts about drought in Oregon, Washington and Idaho
  • Learn how to report drought impacts
  • Discuss how drought affects USDA programs

The workshops will provide attendees with a better sense of what drought is, how it is monitored, and impacts of drought in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Information and resources will be shared to raise awareness about drought that can lead to changes in response to dry conditions. This event is for aimed at USDA agency staff (NRCS, FSA, RD, RMA, FS, etc.) and federal partner’s including Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Watershed Councils, Universities, and other State and Federal Agencies.  

Intended outcomes include: Increasing drought impact reporting; remaining informed on drought status; developing a summary of information shared for adapting to drought conditions; and identifying participant-driven next steps and needs.
