Researchers from the Department of Environment and Science (DES) will help support Queensland graziers to manage drought and climate decision-making more effectively by developing tools including:
Information products and tools will be improved to support decision making in the grazing industry through a better understanding of the barriers to managing climate risk and drought preparation.
Social scientists from the Department of Environment and Science (DES) will engage with Queensland graziers, extension officers and scientists to identify barriers to drought preparedness.
The Northern Australia Climate Program (NACP), a partnership between the Queensland Government, Meat and Livestock Australia Donor Company and the University of Southern Queensland, is helping the grazing industry better manage drought and climate risks through:
DAF staff are providing information to support improved profitability and resilience of Queensland’s grazing businesses. Economic analyses are being conducted for a number of regions across Queensland and a range of management strategies and technologies are being assessed that are aimed at making grazing businesses more profitable and drought resilient. In addition, this project is examining options in the drought response and recovery phases.
The DAF GrazingFutures team is working with industry partners to deliver production, business and climate information to build resilience and grow grazing businesses across Western Queensland.
