National Drought Mitigation Center
The National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC), established at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1995, helps people and institutions develop and implement measures to reduce societal vulnerability to drought, stressing preparedness and risk management rather than crisis management.
The NDMC collaborates with many federal, state, and international agencies.
Research and other projects currently underway, with links to additional information.
