Indiana Drought

Indiana has taken an average amount of action to prepare for both current and future changes in drought risks, compared to other states. However, like most states, it has taken very few steps to address future drought risks and needs to do more.



For more information on how prepared Indiana is for its growing drought threat, read the detailed state report.


Is Indiana taking action?

  • Like most states, Indiana has taken very few steps to assess its vulnerability to future drought risks
  • Indiana has also not developed an adaptation plan or created guidelines and policies that incorporate future drought projections
  • Indiana has multiple plans in place to help reduce current drought impacts including a hazard mitigation plan, emergency operations plan, and a drought mitigation plan
