The SW Climate Hub received funds to support economic impact assessments of the brutal 2018 drought, and the Hub is working with a team including the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), States (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah) and land grant universities to document economic impacts.
