Future Drought Fund: Natural Resource Management Drought Resilience Program

ClosedGrant Closed: 30th of October 2020 Value: Unspecified Run By: Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/?event=public.GO.show&GOUUID=A1307ABD-E1A8-9BB9-6CDC384294555736

The Program is focused on support for experimentation in NRM practices, systems and approaches that go beyond current best practice. This aims to foster innovation and transformational change in the management of Natural Capital to deliver drought resilience in agricultural landscapes.

Through holistic management and adoption of new or existing technology and practices, this program will deliver a range of on-ground outcomes achieving benefits that meet local priorities and contribute to landscape-scale drought resilience.

The intended outcomes of the Natural Resource Management Drought Resilience Program - Grants are:

  • NRM is improved in Australian agricultural landscapes in ways that support primary producers’ capacity to prepare for and respond to future droughts and climate change
  • Primary producers and other land managers are enabled to experiment with adaptive or transformative NRM practices, systems and approaches that can build drought resilience in agricultural landscapes
  • Increased uptake of ”whole-of-system” natural resource management thinking and practices – that is, approaches that acknowledge the linkages between the ecosystem services on which agriculture depends; environmental and economic aspects of drought resilience on farms; and the social drought resilience of communities in agricultural areas
  • Networks are established or strengthened between stakeholders who partner and share responsibility for managing natural resources (including public and private land managers), which improves connectedness and diversity of approaches across the landscape.
