USDA’s Regional Hubs for Risk Adaptation and Mitigation to Climate Change will deliver science-based knowledge and practical information to farmers, ranchers and forestland owners within each region of the United States to support decision-making related to local climate change. The Hubs will maintain and strengthen agricultural production, natural resource management, and rural economic development under increasing climate variability. The program will build capacity within USDA to deliver information and guidance on technologies and risk management practices at regional and local scales. The program will partner with land grant universities; USDA researchers, programs, and field offices; private-sector companies addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation; state, local and regional governments; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Department of Interior (DOI) regional climate change experts; and non-profits providing assistance to landowners.
