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 will host a webinar to disseminate information on new climate focused programs from the AFRI Foundational and Applied Science RFA: Sustainable Agroecosystems: Health, Functions, Processes and Management A1451, Extension, Education & USDA Climate Hubs Partnership A1721, and Rapid Response to Extreme Weather Events Across Food and Agricultural Systems A1712.
During this informational webinar, National Program Leaders from each of the outlined programs will give a brief description of the program, proposal submission deadlines, and other pertinent program information. Time will be reserved for questions and answers. This webinar will be especially useful for project directors with climate based/climate emphasized research, extension, and education projects.
