Closing Date & Time

The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open process to apply to deliver services under the Future Drought Fund: Drought Resilience Leaders Project.

The Drought Resilience Leaders Project activities are to be delivered nationally. The successful grantee will be selected based on their specialist expertise and capability to deliver the project’s activities in a tailored manner that addresses the needs of particular regions, such as dealing with remoteness and lack of connectivity, or specific regional agriculture sectors.

The intended outcomes of the Drought Resilience Leaders Project are to:

  • design and deliver a drought resilience leadership course and a mentoring program that will develop the skills and capabilities of young and emerging leaders, and facilitate a culture of learning and knowledge sharing throughout agriculture dependent communities – building a national drought resilience leadership capability
  • empower young and emerging leaders across a range of sectors (Indigenous Australians, women, agri-business, entrepreneurship, natural resource management and industry) to share and apply their skills and knowledge developed and acquired through the DRL Training Course with their community
  • enable farmers (with demonstrated experience and capacity) as well as other drought and climate experts to share drought and climate resilience and adaptation skills and knowledge with their peers through mentoring (an informal learning program).
