The Drought and Climate Adaptation Program

The Drought and Climate Adaptation Program (DCAP) aims to help producers better manage drought and climate impacts. The best climate scientists, government and non-government agencies, producers and industry leaders are working together on a number of cutting-edge research projects and partnerships.

This research will help you manage financial risks with your decision-making around droughts and climate variability through improved forecast products, tools and extension activities.

DCAP’s major partners include the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF), the Department of Environment, Science and Innovation (DESI) , the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).
