Drought in the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands: Fact Sheets
In August 2018, the National Climate Adaptation Science Center, with support from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Integration and Application Network, U.S. Forest Service, and the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center, held a two-day workshop to synthesize the impacts of drought on various sectors in the USAPI to address this need. Twenty-seven participants from government agencies and universities in the USAPI participated in the meeting. The main goal of the workshop was to summarize information for managers and decision-makers to develop solutions to drought-induced impacts. Participants developed three, two-page summaries highlighting drought impacts on USAPI ecosystems, freshwater supply, and agriculture.
