$10 million Future Drought Fund investment to deliver climate information
Australasian Farmers’ & Dealers’ Journal, Other, 31/01/2021
The Australian Government is investing $10 million through the Climate Services for Agriculture program that it says will help farm businesses increase drought and climate resilience. And while farmers will not see any direct benefit from the $10 million being spent, it will rest with climate associated service providers to spent the funds in a diligent manner. […] CSIRO and BOM will engage the agricultural sector to determine the type of climate information that is most useful to their businesses and test in four pilot regions to ensure the decision support tools to meet their needs.
