This paper provides an overview of a four year national study of water management during drought and builds a foundation for the other papers in this mini-symposium. The primary objective of the study and the definition of key terms are presented, and the overall study approach is described. The shortcomings of drought planning in the U.S. are enumerated, and the principle products from the study are listed with a brief explanation of how they address these shortcomings. Subsequent papers in this mini-symposium discuss each of the case studies and many of the principal products. The study will conclude this October with the publication of How To Be Prepared for Drought.
