2020 Climate Change Consortium for Specialty Crops
Hearing from farmers is the first - and most important - part of our Resilient Roots programming.

The 2020 Climate Change Consortium for Speciality Crops of Southern California was convened in partnership by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the Climate Science Alliance. The vision of the 2020 Climate Change Consortium for Specialty Crops builds off of CDFA's 2012 Climate Change Consortium for Speciality Crops in northern and central California, to identify climate impacts and strategies for resilience specific to Southern California specialty producers. These efforts have provided a critical opportunity to hear from producers, researchers, and technical assistance advisors to identify the opportunities, recommendations, and actions for advancing the region's climate resilience.
