The $5 billion Future Drought Fund will help primary producers and rural and regional communities become more prepared for, and resilient to, future droughts.
The Fund’s Research and Adoption Program will provide $117.3 million up to 2023-24 to support drought resilience and innovation activities.
The Investment Plan will identify national and regional research and adoption priorities and help to shape the Future Drought Fund’s future investments.
We want producer, community and innovation providers’ voices to be heard at all stages of the Program. The Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment have partnered with Alluvium Consulting Australia to engage as widely as possible with rural and regional stakeholders.
Please complete the survey or register for a workshop to have your say on regional and rural research and adoption investment priorities ahead of future droughts.
