A workshop brings people together to exchange ideas, discuss their points of view, and make suggestions with other experts and decision-makers about a particular topic or problem. They focus on gathering information, sharing or generating new knowledge, and building products such as collaborative action plans, priority lists, and draft policies. Scenarios help link drought issues and impacts relevant to the community to related drought management decisions.
