National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS)
The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) is an interagency and interstate effort to establish a national drought early warning information system. NIDIS builds on existing products and service networks like the U.S. Drought Monitor and Seasonal Outlooks to provide fuller coordination of monitoring, forecasting, and impact assessment efforts at national, watershed, state, and local levels. NIDIS is providing a better understanding of how and why droughts affect society, the economy, and the environment, and is improving accessibility, dissemination, and use of early warning information for drought risk management.
