Enabling activities help farmers and regional communities build drought resilience through investment in collaboration and impact assessment.
Science to Practice Forum
The annual Forum supports collaboration and innovation by bringing together the hubs to share their progress towards drought resilience.
The Forum is a hybrid event, blending online and in-person participation. Everyone is invited to participate. Subscribe to Have Your Say to stay informed about future Science to Practice Forums.
Drought Resilience Research and Adoption Investment Priorities
There are four priority areas for future investment in drought resilience:
- Building economic resilience
- Building environmental resilience
- Building social resilience
- Improving the extension and adoption of existing tools and services
These were identified through consultation with farmers and their communities and conducting a stocktake of current drought resilience building services, programs and tools.
The priorities inform Future Drought Fund investments and decisions made in the 8 Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs.
Identifying these priorities helps to advance the National Agricultural Innovation Agenda.
Knowledge sharing is key to the success of 8 Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs.
Knowledge sharing will aid collaboration by making valuable data available to researchers and end users, while respecting ownership where it applies.
Knowledge sharing also focuses on impact assessment to measure the outcomes of hubs’ activities.
