Node Stakeholder Future Planning Workshop, 16 October

With the release of the Productivity Commission report on the Future Drought Fund last month, the hub held a Node stakeholder workshop in Cairns to continue planning for the future of the hub. Each partner shared their own strategic goals on drought resilience, their keys strengths and contributions to drought resilience and the support the hub can provide them to achieve a shared regional resilience. The group then discussed Future Drought Fund priorities and emerging themes and potential key programs that encompass all partners key priorities.

From here, further stakeholder consultation will continue to occur in the lead up to Christmas so the hub can provider a draft hub plan for the next round of funding from 2024 – 2028.
