IoW Webinar: NC Project Nighthawk - Improving Drought Communications
In the aftermath of recent droughts in North Carolina, including the exceptional drought of 2007-08, decision-makers across the state have articulated their needs for information and communications that enhance and improve upon existing resources. These needs include a better understanding of how drought is monitored, the environmental conditions that can cause or worsen drought, and drought impacts on various sectors including agriculture, forestry, and water resources. This project focuses on improving the usability of drought-relevant information for North Carolina decision-makers based on needs identified by the NC Drought Management Advisory Council and constituents such as Cooperative Extension agents and public water supply managers. Rebecca Ward of the North Carolina State Climate Office will talk about Project Nighthawk and share important lessons learned through the project.
