Rapidly changing climate is one of the most pressing issues facing farmers, ranchers, landowners, households and communities. To address these climate change challenges, individuals, families and communities need the best available science to plan for and implement climate-smart and resilient practices.
USDA NIFA hosted a webinar to disseminate information on new climate-focused programs from the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Foundational and Applied Science RFA:
- Sustainable Agroecosystems: Health, Functions, Processes and Management, A1451;
- Extension, Education and USDA Climate Hubs Partnership, A1721; and
- Rapid Response to Extreme Weather Events Across Food and Agricultural Systems, A1712.
In this webinar, National Program Leaders from each of the outlined programs gave a brief description of the program, proposal submission deadlines and other pertinent program information. This webinar is especially useful for project directors with climate based/climate emphasized research, Extension and education projects.
