The SW Climate Hub received funds to support economic impact assessments of the brutal 2018 drought, and the Hub is working with a team including the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), States (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah) and land grant universities to document economic impacts.
The SWCH recently met with Ellen Roberts to learn about EIB funds for forest health projects to minimize catastrophic wildfires, generate electricity and produce high-grade biochar. The San Juan National Forest (SJNF) suffered two wildfires in 2018, the 416 fire and the Burro Fire
