The Future Drought Fund’s annual Science to Practice Forum brings together farmers, researchers, government, industry and the community to explore the innovative tools and practices helping our regions prepare for future drought.
Award-winning television journalist and presenter of ABC TV’s Landline, Pip Courtney, will host this year’s online forum and facilitate engaging conversations on drought preparedness.
The Forum is a three-day, online event that is free to attend, with each day focussed on a particular theme:
Tuesday 6 June – Research and Development: data-driven projects, stories around research trials and outcomes, future-driven content and content relevant to opportunities under the Future Drought Fund for NRM organisations, farming systems groups and research bodies.
Wednesday 7 June – Farmers, Producers and Agricultural Advisors: stories of drought and preparing for it, ‘call-to-action’ presentations, content relevant to opportunities under the FDF for producers and their communities. Farmer and farm-advisor delivered stories.
Thursday 8 June – Community and Policy: community and social projects, including presentations on farmer wellbeing and community resilience in the context of drought. Policy discussions and input from FDF network partners.
The Forum program is currently in development. Choose to attend all three days or select a ticket for any of the individual days. We recommend the three-day option if you’re unsure of what sessions you would like to attend, and if registering prior to the release of the Forum program.
