Rosebud Sioux Tribe Decision Dashboard

Since 2016, HPRCC, along with several partners, has worked with the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in south-central South Dakota through a partnership with the Great Plains Tribal Water Alliance. Through the Bureau of Indian Affairs-funded projects, the HPRCC provided climate information training to tribal environmental professionals and co-produced a series of quarterly climate summaries to help them make better informed on-reservation water management decisions. This Decision Dashboard is a supplement to the summaries, allowing for more real-time monitoring of climate and drought conditions.
