In June 2022, I attended a drought simulation workshop hosted by WaterSMART which focused on predicted future drought scenarios in the South Saskatchewan River Basin. The intent of this workshop was to assess current drought mitigation processes and identify gaps in plans, policy, and legislation that can inform the development of the Alberta Environment and Parks’ Drought Response Plan. The workshop included participants from various sectors including government, industry, municipalities, and environmental nongovernmental organizations (ENGOs).
