The NAREEE Advisory Board is statutorily required to perform an annual review of all the agricultural and natural resource research, extension, or education activities funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to assess their relevance to the Department’s established Research, Education and Economics (REE) priorities and to advise USDA on the adequacy of the funding for those activities (7 USC 7613(b)). This annual process is called the Relevance and Adequacy (R&A) review.  For FY2017, the Board reviewed the programs and activities in the REE mission area and across USDA focused on Climate and Energy Needs. The report provides a summary of the activities and several recommendations on the relevance of the climate and energy programs and the adequacy of funding for those programs.
