Webinar: QLD Dry Topics producer & adviser input needed for new climate resilience tool

19 July 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Producer & adviser input needed for new climate resilience tool


The tool

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and CSIRO are building a new digital platform bringing historical climate information and future climate projections in one location.
Funded through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund, the $10 million Climate Services for Agriculture platform will tailor climate information to the agriculture sector.

Your input

The BoM and CSIRO have been talking to farmers to develop the first prototype, which is now available for testing. They are seeking your feedback before they develop it further to make sure it meets your needs.

On Monday 19 July, Mike Funnell from the Bureau’s Agriculture program will present a webinar on the Climate Services for Agriculture program unique to the Queensland Dry Tropics region.

They will walk you through the first prototype and ask you what type of climate information you’d like to see in the platform, and what is the best way for you to see it. You can also register to stay involved in the continuing development of the platform over the next 12 months.

Date: 19 July, 2021
Time: 1:00pm – 2:30pm
