National Integrated Drought Information System Goals & Objectives

Goal:Enable the Nation to move from a reactive to a more proactive approach to managing drought risks and impacts (PL109-430)

  • The NIDIS Act Public Law (109-430, December 2006)

    “better informed and more timely drought-related decisions leading to reduced impacts and costs”

Three explicit tasks within the NIDIS Act

(1) provide an effective drought early warning system that—

(A) is a comprehensive system that collects and integrates information on the key indicators of drought in order to make usable, reliable, and timely drought forecasts and assessments of drought, including assessments of the severity of drought conditions and impacts;

(B) communicates drought forecasts, drought conditions, and drought impacts on an ongoing basis to— (i) decision-makers at the Federal, regional, State, tribal, and local levels of government; (ii) the private sector; and (iii) the public

(C) includes timely (where possible real-time) data,

information, and products that reflect local, regional, and State differences in drought conditions;

(2) coordinate, and integrate as practicable, Federal research in support of a drought early warning system; and

(3) build upon existing forecasting and assessment programs and partnerships

Natural variability together with near- and longer-term projections for a warmer climate make critical early warning information to support adaptation

Key Clearinghouse Functions:

Credible, Accessible, Timely Information

Where are drought conditions now?

Does this event look like other events?

How is the drought affecting me?

Will the drought continue?

Where can I go for help?
