An Assessment of Drought and Climate Vulnerability and Resilience in New Mexico’s Rio Grande Basin

Project Dates

The 2018 New Mexico Drought Plan calls for more in-depth assessments of NM drought vulnerabilities. This project contributes to this need by identifying stakeholder concerns and drought research priorities along the Rio Grande Basin. This assessment engages areas of concern identified by the NM Drought Task Force, including water, economy, fire, recreation, health, agriculture, and the environment. This project aims to expand CLIMAS network of collaborators and stakeholders in New Mexico and identify emergent drought research priorities that feed into subsequent years of CLIMAS/NIDIS project work.
