Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the creation of seven Regional Hubs for Risk Adaptation and Mitigation of Climate Change. The hubs will translate scientific information so that farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners can better manage their resources and mitigate risk in a changing climate.

“This is the next step in USDA’s decades of work alongside farmers, ranchers and forest landowners to keep up production in the face of challenges,” said Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. “If we are to be effective in managing the risks from a shifting climate, we’ll need to ensure that our managers in the field and our stakeholders have the information they need to succeed. That’s why we’re bringing all of that information together on a regionally-appropriate basis.”
