Delving into Drought Resilience

Did you know the Grower Group Alliance (GGA) is the South-West WA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub?

NACC NRM is part of this initiative of the Commonwealth Governments Future Drought Fund by supporting the GGA as a Regional Node lead. We are assisting through local consultation and feedback about what is important in the Northern Agricultural Region. The latest round of funding has just been released, so to provide the best chance of successful applications, we are looking to ensure local project concepts match the funding priorities.  

For more information on the guidelines surrounding the latest funding, please click here.

The SW WA Hub priorities were initially identified through four regional situation analyses (Southern Rangelands, Mid-West & Gascoyne Coastal, Wheatbelt and South-West) completed by consultants, workshopped with the Regional Advisory Committees and ground truthed by further consultation by the Hub’s Regional Nodes and Hub team members with growers, grower groups, NRM groups and agricultural service providers. We understand that not everyone has had the opportunity to provide their priorities in this process or provide additional comments around the existing priorities identified. However, there is still time!

Please have a read of the Hub’s situation analyses for Mid-West & Gascoyne Coastal and read through the identified Regional Priorities document.

NACC NRM and the GGA would love to hear from you so please contribute your ideas. You have two options to contribute, either through a survey compiled by NACC NRM or directly to the South-West WA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub – swwadroughthub@gga.org.au .

We are keen to understand the top five priorities for drought resilience, and the extension and adoption opportunities to successfully build resilience in your farming systems and business capability. These top priorities might be from the existing lists or additional, please do not feel limited by what has currently been identified.

NACC NRM is engaged through the Grower Group Alliance and supported by the South-West WA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub, through funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
