Southern NSW Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub

Connected and Adaptable People and Places

In a major step forward the Southern NSW Drought Resilience and Innovation Hub Board met in early November to set strategy and approve the Hub’s 3-year operational plan.

Meeting face to face for the first time, at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, the Southern NSW Innovation Hub’s Board considered the Operational Plan that had been developed over the last four months in consultation with Hub Partners and stakeholders.

Barry Irvin AM (Executive Chairman of Bega Cheese) is the independent chair of the Hub Board and contributes not only extensive business and industry expertise, but also an ethos of bringing individuals and communities together to build a shared future.

“Our Operational Plan is designed to build capacity in adoption and commercialisation within SNSW so that our farmers and communities continue to have access to the skills and resources they need to adapt for the future,” Mr Irvin said.
