The Caribbean Drought Learning Network is a new peer-to-peer network that links climate service providers, climate researchers and resource managers to share knowledge and strengthen collaboration and communication in drought research and management in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
The goal of the Caribbean Drought Learning Network (CDLN) is to produce and share information, lessons learned, and needs in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from drought on farms, forests, and rural communities; with long term aims to reduce the vulnerability and costs of drought and improve resistance and resilience in agricultural and forestry operations.
The Drought Learning Network concept has been implemented in other regions and serves as mechanism to strengthen collaboration and communication in drought research and management. A Drought Learning Network can serve as a resource for local, state, and federal land managers, researchers, and climate service providers to share recent science, retain lessons from past drought events, and inform future actions.
