The state of California granted the university $80 million to commence 38 research projects, each directly addressing climate change, in August.

These projects will be a collaborative effort between academic researchers and community-based experts throughout the state. Many of the projects and researchers are affiliated with UC Berkeley, including Ted Grantham, campus associate professor of cooperative extension in the department of environmental science, policy and management.
