Project Number: 3050-11210-009-74-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2018
End Date: Dec 31, 2019

Objective:
The objective of this cooperative agreement is to develop and/or deliver specific scientific information and technologies for agricultural and natural resource managers that enable climate-smart decision-making and where possible provide assistance to enable land managers to implement those decisions. Enhance climate knowledge and resilience in the Southwestern U.S. working lands.
