Sectoral Impacts of Drought and Climate Change

Sectoral Impacts of Drought and Climate Change

CLIMAS Lead:  

This project examines the impacts of drought and climate change on climate-sensitive sectors in the Southwest, focusing on agriculture as well as outdoor recreation and tourism. In response to frequent stakeholder requests, the project examines how water transfers would affect the local economies or rural, water-exporting communities. The project examines how drought and climate change would affect acquisition of water for environmental restoration. It also considers how combining agronomic information with seasonal weather forecasts can assist the use of option contracts to reduce water supply risks.
