Wyoming Drought

Wyoming faces an average drought threat compared to other states. Like other states, it is working to prepare for its current drought risks, but it has done very little to address its future risks.



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


Is Wyoming Taking Action?

  • Wyoming has published some general information on climate change-related drought risks; however, it has not conducted a climate change vulnerability assessment, and it has not developed an adaptation plan
  • Both the Wyoming Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan and the state's disaster response plan include plans for current drought risks
