Webinar planned on climate change and California specialty crops
California Department of Food and Agriculture

The California Department of Food and Agriculture will present results via webinar on its recently released report, “Climate Change Impacts for Specialty Crops: Southern California Region,” which documents strategies proposed by agricultural representatives to improve adaptation to climate change. The report was prepared by the Climate Science Alliance of San Diego in partnership with CDFA and builds upon the efforts of CDFA’s 2012 Climate Change Consortium for Specialty Crops.

“The 2012 Climate Consortium made an important contribution in shaping the department’s priorities and programs in agricultural adaptation to climate change,” said Karen Ross, CDFA Secretary. “We have been looking for opportunities to carry it forward by gathering and disseminating information on climate strategies at the regional level. This is what I hope is the first of many regional efforts to listen and hear from farmers and ranchers throughout California on what we are doing now and what we need to do to prepare for and adapt to a changing climate.”

To disseminate the new regional report’s results and provide further opportunities for feedback, CDFA will host two webinars:
