Drought Resilience Regional Workshops

August 18, 2021 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm

SA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub

Regional Nodes Roadshow Workshops


A major step towards preparing South Australian farmers, industries and regional communities for future droughts is about to be taken.

The South Australian Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub is preparing to conduct a series of regional roadshow workshops to identify each region’s priorities for building drought resilience.

Workshops will be held in Wudinna, Port Augusta, Loxton, Orroroo, Roseworthy and Naracoorte.

A strong farmer representation is being encouraged and the workshops are open to all regional community members – not just those who work in agriculture – who are keen to contribute ideas about strategies to strengthen local drought preparedness and endurance.

The workshops will be vital in defining and co-designing the future activities of the Hub and five regional Nodes. The workshops are the most important opportunity to begin to identify the priority activities the SA Drought Hub should be delivering for the next three years.

They will be positive and highly interactive meetings involving regional Hub partners, primary producers and other stakeholders where the practices and technologies each region needs to build their drought resilience will be brainstormed.

Workshops will be held on the following dates:
Thursday, August 26 – Eyre Peninsula (medium & low rainfall)
Wudinna Community Club, 9am-12.30pm (incl morning tea)

Friday, August 27 – Pastoral Zone (rangelands)
Port Augusta Central Oval, 10.30am-2pm (incl lunch)

Monday, Sep 13 – Riverland-Murraylands (low rainfall & irrigated)
