Providing support for tribal drought planning efforts on the Wind River Reservation
In collaboration with the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapahoe tribes, WWA partners at the DoI NC CSC and the NDMC are developing a comprehensive drought plan for the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. The research team is developing analytical tools and provides analysis to inform the drought plan. WWA investigator McNie’s role is providing evaluation support and helping to inform the research design. She will use a typology of research approaches to guide the design and analysis of research goals, objectives and processes in order to ensure that the project meets its goals of producing useful drought information to inform future policy decisions.
