South-West WA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub

The South-West WA Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub (SW WA Hub) is one of eight Hubs established around the country through the Australian Government’s $5 billion Future Drought Fund. It is led by the Grower Group Alliance (GGA), a Western Australian producer-led network that has been awarded an $8 million Australian Government investment to lead the Hub until at least 2024. Hub partners are providing cash and in-kind co-contributions worth several million dollars, and represent all segments of the supply chain for WA’s southern agricultural growing region.

The SW WA Hub’s key location is at the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development’s Merredin Dryland Research Institute. Hub nodes are at Carnarvon, Geraldton, Northam, Bunbury, Manjimup, Albany, Katanning and Esperance, and core industries include grain, sheep, beef, dairy, viticulture and horticulture.

The SW WA Hub's vision is: 'Thriving producers and communities adapting to our variable environment'.

Its mission is: 'To be a connected and trusted partner building pathways to accelerate innovation and adoption'.
