USDA works closely with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) regional climate change experts to coordinate climate change assistance on federal and regional levels. Learn more about how federal agencies are working together to build climate resilience here.
To learn more about other federal regional climate change efforts, check out:

- The Fish and Wildlife Service’s Landscape Conservation Cooperatives
- NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences & Assessments (RISA) program
The Climate Hubs will serve as a regional source of knowledge explicitly designed for hazard and adaptation planning for agriculture and natural resource management. Through the Climate Hubs, USDA will bring together capabilities to deliver science-based, proven solutions more efficiently to our stakeholders to enable them to maintain and increase productivity and resilience in light of climate change.
