Ken La Valley, Assistant Director, Programs, for UNH Cooperative Extension, was a contributor to the recently-released report, The Role of Extension in Climate Adaptation in the United States, which highlights current Extension work being done in climate science, educational needs, and next steps recommended for better preparing the next generation of Extension professionals.

The report summarizes the outcomes of the Land Grant - Sea Grant Climate Extension Summit, a workshop organized and conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute for Food and Nutrition (USDA/NIFA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Sea Grant College Program.

The workshop focused on identifying critical issues and potential solutions to professional development needs, transformational communication technologies, resources and partnership, and future workforce development—all in the context of the delivery of climate science-based solutions for communities served by NIFA and NOAA.
