USDA promotes climate-resilient landscapes and rural economic systems. USDA contributes to climate assessments, analysis of adaptation and mitigation options, cost-benefit analyses, and tools to support agriculture, forests, grazing lands, and rural communities.
The Climate Change Program Office (CCPO) operates within the Office of Energy and Environmental Policy (OEEP) to coordinate agricultural, rural, and forestry-related climate change program and policy issues across USDA. CCPO ensures that USDA is a source of objective, analytical assessments of the effects of climate change and proposed response strategies. This website provides information, reports, and data related to USDA’s analysis of these topics.
