Southern Queensland Northern New South Wales Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub

Australian farmers live the reality of a changing climate with sometimes devastating impacts on production and profit. What do they need to not just survive, but thrive into the future?

The Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales (SQNNSW) Hub is one of eight national Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs, a flagship of the multi-billion-dollar Future Drought Fund. The Australian Government is investing $10 million in the University of Southern Queensland-led Hub over four years, with more than $10 million contribution from Hub Members and Network Partners. The Hub has more than 20 members and partners, a list that will continue to grow.

The Hub is based at Toowoomba in Southern Queensland, with Nodes strategically positioned at Longreach, Roma and Stanthorpe in Queensland, and Armidale, Lismore and Narrabri in New South Wales.

The Hub will empower stakeholders to co-design drought preparedness activities for the region, across a range of agricultural industries and communities in the areas of wellbeing and employability, agribusiness, climate and finance, and mental health.
