A tornado rips through town. A hurricane blasts along the coast. An earthquake rocks the city. Most natural disasters hit hard and fast. Droughts are different. They steal in, one cloudless day after another, often catching communities unprepared.
Is your community at risk? Planning and Drought helps planners, public agencies, and local officials see the crisis on the horizon and get ready to meet it. This resourceful guide connects the dots between drought and land-use planning, water management, public health, and the local economy. The field's top researchers show how drought leaves communities vulnerable to wildfires, soil erosion, air pollution, and more. Experts with hands-on experience share checklists, case studies, and the pros and cons of various approaches to drought planning. Readers will come away with the tools to act against a threat that creeps in and leaves a legacy of dust.
This PAS report was produced in conjunction with the University of Nebraska's National Drought Mitigation Center and the National Integrated Drought Information System.
