Resilient Regional Agriculture

This project aims to increase the capacity of agriculture systems in the region to adapt to significant changes in climate and market demands. North West Local Land Services will partner with Landcare groups, industry groups, universities and agribusiness providers to fund workshops and activities which focus on benchmarking (farm biophysical, production and financial), understanding market traceability and provenance, managing climate risks, and understanding current and emerging market demands. These activities will improve the resilience of farmers in the region to changing market demands and climate.

Head to the National Landcare Program website for more information.

The primary outcome of this project will address ‘By 2023, there is an increase in the capacity of agriculture systems to adapt to significant changes in climate and market demands for information on provenance and sustainable production’.

Managing resource condition is crucial to the Australian environment and long term agricultural profitability. Agricultural industries manage over 58% of the Australian landscape, making agricultural industries pivotal in natural resource management.

Within the region, cropping and extensive livestock are the dominant agricultural industries, operating on land with medium-high carbon sequestration potential. The majority of farms within the management unit are mixed operations, operating multiple enterprises within their business. Farming is also a high-risk business and many farmers in the region struggle to adapt to the changes in climate and multiple market demands. This project will work directly with these farmers to improve their ability to manage climate risks to increase long term profitability and management of natural resources within capability.
