Resilient Agriculture

S4E13

Small farms have problems dealing with crop loss and other issues related to extreme weather events such as flooding and droughts. A recent report predicts that increases in extreme precipitation are likely to increase inland flooding, causing further economic and agricultural losses in North Carolina. "Resilient Agriculture" advocates say it can increase agricultural productivity and income for farmers as it builds resilience to climate change. ncIMPACT features innovative solutions.

Our Show

ncIMPACT examines issues around our state including education, jobs, healthcare, and more. Host Anita Brown-Graham and her team from the UNC School of Government listen, learn, and lead in generating conversations, and going into the communities that are tackling these problems head on. Talking to the people on the ground, Brown-Graham identifies ways in which they are positively affecting others and making changes, while examining if these innovative solutions can be applied in other communities across the state.

UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina partners with the UNC School of Government, with sponsorship by Civic Federal Credit Union, for this compelling series.
