The Riverland and Mallee may be better prepared for future droughts, following the launch of new drought hubs across Australia.
In total eight Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs will now be established as part of the Australian Government’s $5 billion Future Drought Fund.
Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud said a $66 million investment from the Australian Government has leveraged an additional $114 million in co-contributions with a total of 143 partner organisations across the eight Hubs.
The model will work under a hub & spoke model with SA’s hub to be located at Adelaide Uni’s Roseworthy campus.
