Building Agricultural Resiliency through Adaptation
Hosted by the USDA Northeast Climate Hub and partners, the intent of this meeting is to examine the state of our knowledge on climate adaptation and promote actions to support agriculture in our region. We will target our unique challenges and opportunities based on the climate science most relevant to the agricultural context of our region. The USDA Northeast Climate Hub and partners invited participants from university, federal and state agencies, and the private sector. We also invited researchers, farmers, and other practitioners to provide their perspectives on climate adaptation and resilience. Building upon the foundational understanding of climate trends and impacts, participants will investigate solutions by sharing adaptation experiences and discussing their feasibility, cost-effectiveness, and tradeoffs. Altogether, this meeting will aid the Northeast community in an exchange of information that will drive continued collaboration and advancement of climate adaptation in agriculture. This initial workshop will focus on sharing adaptation experiences in agriculture, discussing outreach strategies, and developing a community of practice.
