The Australian Government has launched its $5 billion Future Drought Fund and wants your input on its investment plan.
They will host a series of online workshops with farmers and regional stakeholders and are seeking your feedback to help understand the following things:
- Develop and verify a shared understanding of what drought resilience means - in practical terms for research users and research providers.
- Develop a shared understanding of the challenges and barriers to achieving drought resilience in the short, medium, and long term.
- Understand what actions we jointly need to take to improve the drought resilience of agricultural communities, enterprises, and ecosystems.
- Share and seek feedback on existing investigations of possible priorities.
The online workshop of the southern region (including the Wheatbelt) will take place at 1.00 pm on Thursday, May 6.
