The five-year national FWFA project is now at the halfway point of research, forecast product development and extension focused on extreme climate events and their impact on a range of primary industries.

This webinar will provide insights into the new forecast products under development in the Rural Research and Development for Profit project: Forewarned is forearmed (FWFA): equipping farmers and agricultural value chains to proactively manage the impacts of extreme climate events.

This project was featured on pages 23 and 24 of the December/January  edition of Feedback Magazine, along with some other useful articles relating to building business resilience.

Led by MLA, the FWFA project runs from 2017-2022 and is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture as part of its Rural R&D for Profit program, with cash and in-kind support from 14 project partners.
