The Australian Government will contribute $8 million over 4 years through the Future Drought Fund. Hub partner will provide co-contributions of $18.5 million over 4 years.
Through the hub, farmers, Indigenous landholders, communities, researchers and business will come together to co-design approaches and solutions for drought resilience in Tropical North Queensland.
Innovative approaches will be explored that translate into to the Tropical North Queensland context and knowledge will be made available, shared and curated to ensure approaches and solutions are well informed.
The hub will also input into building critical skills as a key input in building resilience to drought and leveraging new tools, approaches and technology.
The core site is at the JCU Ideas Lab in Cairns.
