The importance of multi-year drought management

Approved in March 2018 by the AWC board, this Project Team has produced a guide and workshop materials to assist Watershed Planning and Advisory Councils (WPACs) as they engage municipalities and communities within their watershed to better plan for, mitigate, respond to and recover from multi-year droughts. The project highlighted the importance of multi-year drought management in Alberta, compiled existing drought management information and resources in the province, and facilitated the delivery of customizable information to support small urban and rural municipalities before, during and after a drought.

Final documents were approved by the AWC board at their June 2020 meeting. Documents are undergoing design and layout and will be publicly available in the coming months.
