The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center is proud to be part of a collaborative effort of University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty across multiple disciplines, working with native tribes and women who own farmland to develop climate-smart tools for community resilience.
Engagement of all segments of society is needed to maximize the effectiveness of climate-smart strategies, the federal agencies said. This initiative will work with communities to understand their needs and how they are responding to climate stress. To enhance community resilience, the project will develop data collection and decision-making tools including environmental monitoring and vulnerability assessments.
The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce & National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). To learn more about the effort, read the full story in Nebraska Today.
