Our Mission:

To increase communication and identify challenges, opportunities, and potential solutions regarding climate and Maine agriculture.

Why this matters:
Agricultural producers in Maine have always had to manage for weather risks.  Climate change effects on Maine weather can reduce farm income or increase costs, but may also create new opportunities.  Private and public stakeholders working at the farm, state, and regional level can share experience and knowledge to meet the new challenges and opportunities brought by a changing climate.
 
Who we are:
The Maine Climate and Agriculture Network is a group of individuals organized through the University of Maine who recognize the importance of climate and weather impacts on agriculture.  Participation is open to all who wish to contribute to our shared mission.
