USGCRP Social Science Coordinating Committee Debuts Seminar Series on Food, Culture, and Climate

The Social Sciences Coordinating Committee (SSCC) of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) has launched a public webinar series on the intersections between food, culture, and climate. Ariela Zycherman, CPO Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program manager, is on the planning committee for this effort and is the Co-Chair for the USGCRP-SSCC. The webinar series will bring together researchers on food and culture, climate, and food, and climate and culture to consider the ways in which these three pieces fit together.
