USDA’s regional hubs will deliver science-based knowledge and practical information to farmers, ranchers and forest landowners within each region of the US to support decision-making related to climate change. These hubs are needed to maintain and strengthen agricultural production, natural resource management, and rural economic development under increasing climate variability. The Hubs will build capacity within USDA to deliver information and guidance on technologies and risk management practices at regional and local scales.
For more information about USDA and climate change, check out the USDA Regional Hubs for Risk Adaptation and Mitigation to Climate Change Factsheet.
HUBS UPDATE: The application deadline has been extended to August 21st, 2013. Please email Bill Hohenstein at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
