For the past five years the Drought Research Initiative, an effort funded by the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Science (CFCAS), has been studying the 1999-2004/05 drought to understand the processes that led to its formation, propagation and termination; to characterize the event in terms of its impacts on hydrology, agriculture, forestry and other resources, and to determine how this experience can be used to develop better prediction systems.  This research has led to the spin-off of a number of ideas, methodologies and model developments that have benefitted, or have the potential to benefit, provincial and federal government agencies involved in renewable resource management in all parts of western Canada.  The Saskatchewan DRI users workshop focused on those findings that are most relevant for users and explore ways in which the DRI results could be implemented in operational environments.
