The Australian Government is inviting applicants/organisations via an open process under the Future Drought Fund: Drought Resilient Soils and Landscapes Grants Program.

The objective of the program is to trial and demonstrate how scaling of particular practices (or combinations of practices) to improve management of natural capital can build drought resilience.

  • targeted at improving the drought resilience of agriculture
  • involve trial and demonstration of practices to improve management of natural capital in ways that directly support drought resilience
  • focused on achieving and measuring impacts at scale, particularly landscape scale
