Summary
Abstract: The National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC) helps people and institutions develop and implement measures to reduce societal vulnerability to drought, stressing preparedness and risk management rather than crisis management. Most of the NDMC?s services are directed to state, federal, regional, and tribal governments that are involved in drought and water supply planning.

The NDMC, established in 1995, is based in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska?Lincoln. The NDMC?s activities include maintaining an information clearinghouse; drought monitoring, including participation in the preparation of the U.S. Drought Monitor and maintenance of the web site (drought.unl.edu/dm); drought planning and mitigation; drought policy; advising policy makers; collaborative research; K?12 outreach; workshops for federal, state, and foreign governments and international organizations; organizing and conducting seminars, workshops, and conferences; and providing data to and answering questions for the media and the general public. The NDMC is also participating in numerous international projects, including the establishment of regional drought preparedness networks in collaboration with the United Nations? Secretariat for the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction.

the needs of decision-makers and others who use the information. Drought

and Climate Center (NWCC), the Department of Commerce, the Department of the
Interior and the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC).
