Persistent drought, dwindling water resources, and climate variability in western agroecosystems require anticipatory management.
How do we support resilience-based management strategies in response to drought and climate variability?
- Proactive short and long-term management strategies.
- Ecological, social, and economic resilience.
- Participatory approaches and the co-production of knowledge, including through citizen science.
- Linking multi-scale (landscape, community, individual) land-use/land-cover dynamics to (national, state, and local) agricultural and water policies.
