In an attempt to better coordinate drought resilience efforts among departments, the federal government is launching a government-wide initiative to help communities and departments better prepare for and deal with drought situations.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the comprehensive effort, named the National Drought Resilience Partnership, is designed to unify governmental responses.

Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack said the government needs to look at how to better prepare farmers, ranchers, businesses and communities alike to be resilient in the face of continued drought.

The efforts will include a single website with information on drought and drought-related resources. The partnership will also include a better coordinated national soil monitoring network, improved weather forecasting and better ways to disseminate information to the public.
