2020 Jornada Virtual Symposium

The 2020 Jornada Symposium featured short presentations highlighting our climate adaptation efforts.


Climate adaptation in the Southwest

The USDA Southwest Climate Hub team prepared flash presentations to showcase our climate adaptation projects. The Hub has three functional areas: 1) research, science synthesis, assessments, 2) tool evaluation, development and technology transfer, and 3) convening, outreach and education. These short presentations describe weather and climate challenges and adaptation solutions for agriculture, natural resources and communities in the southwestern United States.
