People can take steps ahead of time to reduce the effects of drought, just as they would for other natural disasters. Planning ahead gives decision-makers, resource managers and citizens the chance to relieve the most suffering at the least expense. Reacting to drought in ‘crisis mode’ is often expensive and not well-targeted.

The National Drought Mitigation Center offers more information about planning ahead in Why Plan for Drought. NDMC also maintains a Drought Management Database, a growing collection of information about what has been tried in responding to and preparing for drought in the U.S.
