CLIMAS 2016-2017 Assessment – Identifying Emergent Research Priorities and Expanding the Regional Network

Project Dates

This project aims to better understand the different climate and environmental threats facing urban and rural communities in Arizona and New Mexico. The project focuses on: 1) participating in the lower San Pedro River conservation collaborative to provide expertise about drought and climate vulnerability that is tailored to specific regional challenges; 2) expanding our analysis in the Gila River basin to identify potential collaborators and regional priorities regarding drought and climate; 3) collaborating with Pima County Office of Emergency Management to update their hazard mitigation plan. This project contributes to the Intermountain West Drought Early Warning System (IMW DEWS)
