Extreme shifts in weather patterns are altering how crops grow and endangering U.S. harvests and food security. In this piece for Yale Climate Connections, Energy Innovation's Daniel J. O'Brien and AGCI's Devan Crane explore how crop modeling and smart policies can help.
A new report from Aspen Global Change Institute and the University of Arizona Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions provides a first-of-its-kind comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness of a variety of adaptation practices that leverage nature-based solutions (NbS) to help build more climate-resilient coasts and coastal communities.
Recent studies indicate that California must prepare for both worsening drought and more intermittent, heavier rainfall in the face of climate change. In this piece for Yale Climate Connections, Energy Innovation's Sarah Spengeman and AGCI's Elise Osenga explore how extreme weather swings are likely to become the state's new normal as precipitation patterns are altered by rising temperatures.
This report summarizes the state of knowledge of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) in the context of coastal climate adaptation in the United States and identifies numerous challenges and opportunities.
Climate change-induced warmer temperatures are causing many plants in temperate climates to exhibit spring behavior. This change in the timing of plant development produces ripple effects that impact health, culture, livelihoods, and food security. New research is increasing our understanding of plant phenology and allowing for informed decision-making and adaptation strategies.
In this piece for Yale Climate Connections, AGCI Climate Science Fellows Tanya Petach & Emilio Mateo review how scientists are bridging the research-practice boundary to lessen the pain of climate change and the 23-year megadrought it has fueled in the Colorado River basin
Working on the front lines of the growing climate crisis is emotionally and spiritually demanding. We recently spoke with AGCI Affiliate Susanne Moser, lead organizer and facilitator of the Adaptive Mind workshop, to understand the skills and capacities needed to navigate the turbulent, traumatic, and transformative challenges of climate change with resilience.
Emerging research is beginning to shed light on actions that consumers and producers alike can take to reduce food system impacts on the climate. Emissions are generated at every stage of the food system, from the production on farm to the food you scrape off your plate.
