Implementing drought resilience will result in a regional Australia that can endure deeper, longer droughts, and recover from them sooner. This will allow our food and agribusinesses to boost national farm income, increase food security, and protect the regional jobs that rely on agriculture. It will increase the resilience of rural and regional communities that depend on agriculture and improve environmental outcomes.
Plan and collaboration
We are linking external resources with CSIRO's Agriculture and Food, Land and Water, Oceans and Atmosphere, and Data61 business units to develop cohesive, cross-industry solutions that are ready for community and industry adoption.
Drought is a society-wide problem, that requires significant stakeholder input and support to achieve impact. The Mission brings together CSIRO, Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment and Bureau of Meteorology. We are seeking additional partners to help us reach our goal of a drought resilient regional Australia.
