In December, Dr. Nelson gave an invited presentation on vulnerability assessment at the Seminário de Avaliação da Seca de 2010-2016 no Nordeste do Brasil (Workshop for the Evaluation of the Northeast Brazil Drought 2010 – 2016), hosted by the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation, the World Bank, and the Northeast Development Bank, in Fortaleza, Brazil. The workshop brought together climatologists, hydrologists, policy makers, water managers, and one or two social scientists to talk about drought impacts and the ways in which different state bureaucracies responded. The objective was to identify best practices across the states, to identify ongoing challenges, and to develop a research agenda to respond to these challenges.
