SCIPP and the National Drought Mitigation Center worked with the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission to develop a statewide drought preparedness and response plan. The process was begun from the annual meeting of the Interstate Council on Water Policy that was held in Little Rock, AR in October 2015. Conversations between ANRC, SCIPP and NDMC led to planning the first workshop (June 2016) among Arkansas state agencies and federal partners to begin the planning process. SCIPP summarized breakout discussions for use by ANRC in the planning process.
