Virtual Workshop for the Climate Adaptation and Mitigation in Fruit and Vegetable Supply Chains Project
June 23, 2020-June 24, 2020
By Invitation Only, Online
The 4th Annual Workshop for the Climate Adaptation and Mitigation in Fruit and Vegetable Supply Chains project was shifted to an online format due to travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 global emergency and took place on June 23-24, 2020. 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 Agriculture & Food Systems Institute, the multi-organization team was awarded a four-year 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.
