Objective:
Develop and deliver science-based, region-specific information and technologies to agricultural and natural resource managers that enable climate-smart decision-making and provide assistance to enable land managers to implement those decisions.

Approach:
1) Mutually develop and deliver science-based, Northeast region-specific information and technologies to agricultural and natural resource managers that enables climate-smart decision making and provides assistance to implement those decisions. 2) Engage networks of researchers, educators and extension professionals in capacity building to address climate change and agriculture-related issues; and 3) Transform and innovate the delivery and sharing of science-based climate change adaptation and mitigation information with the agriculture sector, from research results, to translation into tools and materials, to use and adoption by stakeholders.
