Oklahoma Drought

Oklahoma is better prepared for its projected future drought risks than most other states; it has a climate-change adaptation plan in place, albeit only for the water sector. On the other hand, Oklahoma has done less than most states to address its current drought threat.

Is Oklahoma Taking Action?

  • Oklahoma is one of only a few states that have taken even a fair amount of action to prepare for its projected future drought risks
  • With its Comprehensive Water Plan, Oklahoma is one of only a few states to have a climate change adaptation plan addressing future drought risks in relation to the water sector
  • However, there is no evidence that Oklahoma explicitly incorporates future drought risks into programs and policies or that it has funding dedicated to addressing future drought risks
