About Us

The US Department of Agriculture established a network of regional climate hubs to deliver science-based knowledge and practical information on climate variability and change to farmers, ranchers, and forest land managers.

These Hubs help to maintain and strengthen agricultural production, natural resource management, and rural economic development under increasing climate variability. The Hubs work with USDA partners to deliver information and guidance on technologies and risk management practices at regional and local scales -- which helps with everyday decisions on the farm, field, and forest.

The Southeast Regional Climate Hub (SERCH) connects with public, academic, and private sector organizations, researchers, and outreach specialists to deliver tools and resources that help producers respond to challenges associated with climate variability and change, such as drought, heat stress, excessive moisture, longer growing seasons, and changes in pest pressures. SERCH also provides periodic regional assessments of risk and vulnerability that contribute to the National Climate Assessment and delivers and interprets regional climate change forecasts for hazard and adaptation planning. SERCH partners with NCSU and other land-grant universities, the SECSC and other federal agencies, and the private sector to create and deliver regionally relevant climate adaptation information for the southeastern US.
