These workshops built on themes and information from the October 2008 Governor’s Conference on Managing Drought and Climate Risk. The 80 participants engaged with WWAresearchers in instructional sessions to learn more about Colorado’s climate and climate variability, the history of past drought in Colorado, scenarios for future climate change, and implications of climate change for water and other resources. During small-group discussion sessions, participants discussed the impacts of the 2000s drought, and what information or resources would help adapt to future droughts; and what potential impacts from a changing (warming) climate most concerned them.
