Our Challenge
When we incorporate ecological sensitivity into drought relief plans, how does this improve longer term outcomes for people and nature?

To meet the challenge of climate change-driven drought, the Ecological Drought working group seeks to create a framework to help communities better prepare for drought and to adopt management strategies that bolster – rather than degrade – the intact, functioning ecosystems that benefit both people and nature.
