Victorian Drought Resilience Hub

A new Victoria Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub has recently been created. The Hub will give farmers and farming communities the tools to address the challenges and vulnerabilities to drought.  

The Hub will play a critical role in supporting farming businesses to be better informed, more productive, and more profitable in the face of future droughts. This will involve connecting farmers to innovative technologies and practices. It will also translate research and knowledge into impactful outcomes and support take-up through on-farm testing, adoption, and scaling-up of new solutions and commercialisation. 

The Hub will be led by the University of Melbourne in partnership with the Mallee Regional Innovation Centre and Birchip Cropping Group from the Loddon Mallee region. Other partners across the state include Food & Fibre Gippsland, Southern Farming Systems, Riverine Plains working together with Deakin University, Federation University, La Trobe University and Agriculture Victoria.

Objectives

We acknowledge and respect Victorian Traditional Owners as the original custodians of Victoria’s land and waters, their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom has ensured the continuation of culture and traditional practices. We are committed to enabling self-determination for all Aboriginal people and aim to work closely with the Aboriginal community to drive action and improve outcomes especially in the context of a changing climate.
