Meet Partners of the Southwest Climate Hub

The success of the Southwest Climate Hub in engaging land management stakeholders on management practices, decision support tools and climate and weather information is achieved through close coordination with other USDA, federal, and state agencies along with university and NGO partners. Within the USDA, representatives from the Agricultural Research Service, the United States Forest Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service work collectively to serve the needs of farmers, ranchers and forest landowners in adapting to impacts of climate variability.  The Southwest Hub works in coordination with other federal agencies, such as the United States Geological Survey Climate Science Centers, Fish and Wildlife Service Landscape Conservation Cooperatives and National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration RISAS listed below. Each agency manages it's own piece of the climate change puzzle and the Southwest Hub focuses specifically on working lands.  To best accomplish outreach, we partner with Cooperative Extension in each Southwestern State.  Other State, academic and non-profit organization partners are also listed below.
