Extension Climate & Extreme Weather Programming: Successes, Challenges & Opportunities – Report

Publication Description

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recommends rapid implementation of climate adaptation and mitigation programs to reduce the chance of increasingly catastrophic climate change impacts. Cooperative Extension is one outlet for rapid program implementation. This report – generated by a multi-state team in response to an Extension Foundation RFP – contains a national inventory of CES programs and practices in the area of climate and extreme weather and offers insight for Extension educators and upper administration regarding successes, challenges, and gaps in C/EW programming. Programs included align with Project Drawdown, other frameworks, and generally accepted conservation practices.
