Objectifs
Three objectives relate to the challenges of using information technology to support science-based management of resources in arid and semi-arid regions :(1) Engage with the research community, stakeholders, information intermediaries, and operational agencies to determine needs for decision support tools, training, and applications.(2) Employ advanced information technologies in the development of decision support tools, training, and applications.(3) Transfer decision support tools to sustainable operations.Two objectives relate to specific approaches for science-based management of resources in arid and semi-arid regions in the face of hydroclimatic uncertainty and change :(4) Using scenarios and scenario planning to characterize and embrace uncertainty in adaptation planning and management.(5) Using forecasts of weather and seasonal to interannual variability as a bridge to adaptation.
