USDA Regional Climate Hubs: Caribbean Climate Sub Hub

USDA Regional Climate Hubs: Caribbean Climate Sub Hub

By William Gould 21 March 2014 @ 12:45pm

The USDA has established a Southeast Regional Caribbean Climate Sub Hub located in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico. This multi-agency effort is led by Dr. William Gould, Research Ecologist with the U.S. Forest Service International Institute of Tropical Forestry. The Caribbean Climate Sub Hub is one of seven Regional Hubs and three Subsidiary Hubs nationwide. This network of Climate Hubs will work with USDA to deliver science based knowledge and practical information to farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners that will help them to adapt to climate change and weather variability by coordinating with local and regional partners in federal and state agencies, universities, and the public.
