Sustainability Briefings launch with case studies on climate change and the New England food system

hens Food Solutions New England is pleased to announce the release of a collection of case studies on climate change and the New England food system. These case studies—a total of 12—were researched and written by the University of New Hampshire Sustainability Institute’s 2014 Thomas W.

This series of case studies is focused on documenting and communicating climate impacts and adaptation strategies for New England farmers and fishermen. Each case study provides a look at the challenges and opportunities of farms and fishermen in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

FSNE is a regional, collaborative network organized around a single goal: to transform the New England food system into a resilient driver of healthy food, sustainable farming and fishing, and thriving communities. Learn more at
