Agricultural Resiliency to Climate Change in the Northeast

Dr. Joana Chan, CICCA Postdoctoral Research Associate, recently traveled to San Francisco for the National American Association of Geographers (AAG) Annual Meeting, where she presented research on “Agricultural Resilience to Climate Change in the Northeast.”

This research was conducted in 2015, in partnership with the USDA Northeast Climate Hub and Pennsylvania State University, and involved operating three regional research projects to lay the groundwork for facilitating agricultural resiliency to climate change in the Northeast. The poster presented by Dr. Chan, was created by Cornell University and Penn State, and outlines and integrates findings from the Northeast Climate Change and Agriculture Vulnerability Assessment, Regional Research & Extension Capacity Survey, and Literature Review of Agricultural Stakeholder Views to identify priority research and Extension needs.
