January 23-24, 2019 Climate Change PT Meeting

UC ANR Program Team Meeting and Workshop
Integrating Climate Change in California Cooperative Extension Programs
This event was held on Wednesday, January 23-Thursday, January 24, 2019
California Room, UC Merced

The workshop portion of this meeting is funded by the
Renewable Resources Extension Act (RREA)

This meeting will bring together academics and programmatic staff from across the ANR network to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and identify priorities for engaging with climate change in statewide programs, working groups, and Strategic Initiatives. 

  • The one-and-a-half day workshop will include updates on the latest science on climate impacts and vulnerabilities in California and sessions that focus on disaster preparedness and response, climate science communication, and climate-smart agriculture.
  • The workshop will also include a meeting of the Climate Change Program Team to identify short- and long-term priorities for enhancing the visibility, relevance, and impact of UC ANR’s climate change research and extension programs.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing farmers, natural resource managers, and communities in California. Ensuring that UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE) academics and staff are informed, engaged, and prepared to assist the communities they serve in addressing climate change issues is critical to all of UC ANR’s Strategic Initiatives. This workshop builds on efforts by the Climate Change Program Team to strengthen interdisciplinary collaborations and enhance the capacity of UCCE to advance climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts in California.
