  • To hear what steps are needed to prepare a robust drought plan and what information should be included.
  • To learn about drought response measures, including triggers for moving between drought stages and actions to take at each stage.
  • To find opportunities to collaborate and create efficiencies in drought planning and response.
  • To ask questions about anything drought-related.
