Description

The International Climate Hub is a year-old USDA initiative that builds on the model of USDA’s 10 regional climate hubs to translate climate science into action around the world. It supports domestic and international natural resource managers, country officials, researchers, students, and communities with three streams of work: scientific research and data synthesis; tools and resources; and training, outreach, and convening opportunities. These efforts are intended to lead to more climate-informed decision making, both at home and abroad. The International Climate Hub seeks to work closely with an institution with comparable goals to develop and execute initiatives where collaboration would yield stronger results than independent efforts.
