Research Project: Iowa State University Extension Climate Program

Location: Soil, Water & Air Resources Research

Project Number: 5030-21600-001-009-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2023
End Date: Aug 31, 2026

Establish a more structured relationship between the Midwest Climate Hub, the Cooperator and their extension partners.

The project will establish a Cooperator liaison position that will work with or connect the ARS Midwest Climate Hub (MCH), the Cooperator, and other partners. The liaison will develop programming around climate, agriculture and water data with the MCH. The liaison will meet regularly with the MCH staff and join regularly scheduled meetings to discuss current climate issues and climate adaptation/mitigation efforts, and will assist in planning/developing extension- Climate Hub efforts with the Cooperator. The liaison will also assist in connecting with several other extensions, funded projects related to climate, and agriculture. The liaison will further help to transition regional efforts to possible funding on extension-climate adaptation and mitigation. The regional partner will help to gather and share current climate impact (i.e. drought/flood, etc.) information on agriculture that will be used by the MCH and various regional partners.
