About ARID

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.
