There is a new summary publication on drought planning across the Southeast United States that you might find useful. It is based on interviews with a number of folks across the region, including me, and written by Kirsten Lackstrom of the University of South Carolina and supported by NOAA and USC. You might be surprised about how drought planning is done in your own state as well as how different it is from one state to the other. You can view it on the website at The full title is ” Drought Planning in the Southeast United States: An Assessment of State Approaches, Planning Needs and Gaps, and Opportunities for the Southeast Drought Early Warning System.”
