Rural & Urban Communities

People living in a particular area with common interests make up a community. Rural and urban areas are composed of a number of communities including Tribal members, Tribal nations, recreationists, farmers, hikers, ranchers, natural resource managers, foresters, and many others. Both rural and urban areas will experience warmer temperatures due to climate change yet these areas and communities within them have different needs, issues, abilities and interests. To assist different communities to adapt and mitigate the effects of a changing climate the USDA has a number of resources and programs available including those to assist with food security and adaptation planning. Tribal nations are sovereign nations and the USDA has a variety of resources available for Tribal nations and Tribal members to assist them.
