The Tasmanian Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub – known as the TAS Farm Innovation Hub – is one of eight established across Australia by the Commonwealth Future Drought Fund.
As our climate changes and becomes more variable, we need to build climate resilience into communities, economies and environments at all scales.
The hub helps Tasmanian farmers, and those who support them, build relationships, access essential information, and build critical skills and knowledge to prepare for drought and climate change.
Through the hub, people and organisations in the agriculture industry build knowledge to drive innovation in their businesses, care for land and waterways, and enhance community wellbeing.
Diverse partners and network supporters across a spectrum of values, expertise and experience are working together to increase farmers’ access to knowledge and adoption of practices that ensure financial, social and environmental resilience to climate change and variability.
The hub also seeks to enhance community wellbeing to mitigate the increasing risk of drought and other extreme climatic events.
