Virtual: Applying Social Sciences in Development of Climate-smart Agriculture (Midwest Climate Hubs)

April 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC-5

In efforts to understand and advance agricultural practices that promote climate resilience, ag organizations and advisors face several challenges in facilitating the adoption of these practices. Social science research has homed in on these issues, developing nuanced frameworks for exploring these challenges and barriers.

In this webinar, Dr. Laurie Nowatzke, Coordinator of the USDA Midwest ClimateHub in Ames, Iowa, will present two studies related to farmers’ climate perspectives and conservation practice use. The presentation will also include a discussion of two applied projects that harness social science research to advance climate-smart outreach and programming in the Midwest.
