Southern NSW Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub

Central West Farming Systems is excited to be partnering with the Southern NSW Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub funded by the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund

Southern NSW Innovation Hub

Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub: a consortium of nine regional partners including primary producers, Indigenous, industry and community groups, researchers, entrepreneurs, education institutions, resource management practitioners and government agencies.

Partner – Southern NSW Innovation Hub Farming Systems Group Alliance

Centrally located at Condobolin also operating a number of regional sites within a 250 km radius, CWFS welcomes the opportunity to be a partner in the Southern NSW Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub – Farming Systems Group Alliance.

 

The Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment has established eight Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs nationally to facilitate a coordinated effort of innovation and collaboration. These will deliver a step change in the effectiveness of extension, adoption and commercialisation practices among regional communities to combat future drought.

Three new Drought Resilient Soils projects are underway

Funded through the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) Future Drought Fund, CWFS is currently involved in the planning and implementation of the following projects that will extend over the next two years:

 

CSU – Saving Our Soils During Drought
CSU – Creating landscape-scale change through the promotion of resilient pasture systems
CSU – Improved drought resilience through optimal management of soils and available water
 
This is a great outcome for Southern NSW with some exceptional projects being funded and a large number of Southern NSW Innovation Hub partners involved in the development and delivery of them. We will provide further updates on these projects as they develop over the next few months.
