Host an adaptation planning and practices course with members of the agricultural community in the Rio Grande Basin.
Develop and host a training course designed to identify and prioritize adaptation strategies for agricultural resource managers in the middle Rio Grande. The steps of the process include: (1) Define goals and objectives, (2) Assess climate impacts and vulnerabilities, (3) Evaluate objectives, considering climate impacts, (4) Identify adaptation approaches and tactics for implementation. Deliverables for Part I will include a workshop report that details the adaptation approaches and tactics identified for implementation and supporting literature. The intended long-term outcomes are improved understanding of potential agricultural adaptation options in the Rio Grande Basin in New Mexico, and the implications of different adaptation options for different sectors within the agricultural system.
