Interior Department Releases Drought Resiliency Report

Interagency work group reports a number of action steps.

President Biden’s administration released the Drought Resilience Interagency Working Group’s Summary Report. The group was formed in May 2021, and the report outlined the actions they have taken in one year’s time. Some highlights include investing $38 million in the Klamath Basin, conducting listening sessions with a number of community and climate experts, and partnering with Tribal nations for conservational advising.

“The dangerous impacts of climate change and drought are being felt across America,” said Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. “We remain committed to an all-of-government approach and collaboration with Tribes, irrigators, businesses and adjoining communities to address the impacts of the drought crisis and work together on long-term solutions.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the Working Group would seek God’s wisdom as they search for effective solutions to droughts. 
  • For Secretary Haaland to have discernment as she heads the Interior Department.
  • For an increase in precipitation in the affected western states.
