Background
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced last week the locations of seven Regional Hubs for Risk Adaptation and Mitigation to Climate Change. The Climate Hubs will build on the capacity within USDA to deliver science-based knowledge and practical information to farmers, ranchers and forest landowners to support decision-making related to climate change across the country.
