Virtual Workshop for the Climate Adaptation & Mitigation in Fruit & Vegetable Supply Chains Project

    August 17, 2021
    10:00 am - 1:00 pm
    Washington, DC, USA

To help guide activities in the project’s final year, the Climate Adaptation and Mitigation in Fruit and Vegetable Supply Chains project convened a virtual full-team workshop focused on finalizing the crop modeling results in anticipation of increased stakeholder engagement and extension. Workshop participants included scientists and extension specialists from the University of Florida, Agriculture & Food Systems Institute, Washington State University, International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), University of Arkansas, University of Illinois, and World Agricultural Economic and Environmental Services (WAEES).

Co-led by the University of Florida and the Agriculture & Food Systems Institute, the multi-organization team was awarded a grant by the United States Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA) in 2017. The team uses various forms of modeling to study US fruit and vegetable supply chains, with a focus on climate adaptation and mitigation opportunities.
