The Southwest Drought Learning Network links climate service providers with resource managers to increase community resilience when facing current and future drought events. Each of the five teams found in the outside circles are unique in their focus, but also work together and share opportunities with other teams. Knowledge sharing takes place between teams (which consist of climate service providers and other experts in the field) and resource managers/stakeholders with peer-to-peer learning as the focus of DLN.  Past experiences, lessons learned, and availability to monitoring processes is a constant loop that increases the transfer of knowledge among teams and resources managers.
