About us The Southern NSW Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.

Charles Sturt University leads a consortium to deliver user-centred innovation, research, commercialisation and adoption as part of the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.

Hosted by Charles Sturt University, the Hub’s primary mission is to support farmers and rural communities in the Southern NSW region in preparing for and mitigating drought impacts and capitalising on opportunities for recovery from drought.

We achieve this by working with our partner organisations to provide farmers and communities with valuable knowledge, tools, and practices and by undertaking research were there are knowledge gaps.

The Hub acts as a bridge, connecting them with local agricultural experts, innovative practices, and cutting-edge research and technologies.

Since inception in mid-2021, the Hub has secured an additional $20.7 million in cash investment across over ten projects.

These projects are delivering on-the-ground impact for southern NSW, in areas including irrigation efficiency, stock management areas, improved pasture systems, on-farm water management and nitrogen decisions.
