The National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC) is involved in a project with several other agencies and organizations in Canada, Mexico, and the United States to develop a map of the major natural hazards that threaten North America. Work on the project began in February 1995. Since then, there have been three working group meetings, with the most recent meeting taking place in Guadalajara, Mexico, in February 1997. Project leaders include Dr. Chris Tucker (Emergency Preparedness Canada), Dr. Joe Golden (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA]), Dr. Rosalind Helz (U.S. Geological Society [USGS]), and Dr. Mario Ordaz- Schroeder (Centro Nacional de Prevención de Desastres [CENAPRED]—National Center for Disaster Prevention).
