This project brings together commercial primary producers and the Derwent Catchment Project to explore market opportunities for natural capital and carbon projects and how to integrate new investment streams to build on-farm resilience.

The project will boost drought preparedness and resilience capabilities of horticultural farmers and rural communities engaged in wine grape, almond and citrus production value chains across South Australia, Southern NSW, Victoria, and Tasmania. The Tas hub will establish demonstration sites for wine grapes and lead qualitative data collection and synthesis.

This project will fast-track direct support to Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian cropping and livestock farmers in the management of pastures and use of livestock containment and feeding systems for drought resilience.

The hub is proud to work with a diverse network of over 20 Industry Partners, Delivery Partners and collaborators to build drought and climate resilience through hub activities. Through this network, we span the entire breadth of the Tasmanian agriculture sector and can support farmers, agricultural businesses and communities.
