Extension's Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships have planned approximately a dozen climate change adaptation convenings in Greater Minnesota, providing venues for Extension Climatologist Mark Seeley to provide region-specific climate information. Partners from multiple agencies and local organizations have provided important perspectives and information that can aid in community decision making.
The purpose of these convenings is to inform Minnesotans of the consequences of climate change, and to learn what innovations and strategies they are considering and deploying at the household, farmstead, and community level to adapt to a changing environment.
