Farming can be a challenging occupation in the Midwest. In response to the growing concern of stress experienced by producers and ranchers, the Midwest Climate Hub has consolidated resources to be used when needed, working to build producer resilience in the region.

Though vulnerable to earthquakes, tsunamis, and wildfires, the major threat of disaster in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands comes from hurricanes, tropical storms, and drought.
The Southeast Climate Hub co-hosted a free Hurricane Resilience Workshop to share first-hand information, and develop a Technical Manual to assist information sharing from Extension to land managers. View presentations from the workshop.
