Farming businesses in Tasmania can now receive specialised training and coaching to plan for and manage future risks to their business, make good decisions when things change suddenly, understand the opportunities for farming in a changing future and ultimately build resilience for the business and its people.
This includes climate-related risks such as extreme weather (drought, floods, fires), new and existing pests and diseases (biosecurity practices) and associated business challenges (people, financial risks or supply chain related risks).
Resilient Farming Tas is a program being delivered by RMCG in cooperation with Tasmanian consultancy Optimum Standard until June 2025 on behalf of the Tasmanian Department of Natural Resource Management and Environment. Resilient Farming Tas is one of several programs funded by the Australian Government’s $5 billion Future Drought Fund to enhance drought preparedness and resilience.
Resilient Farming Tas supports learning and development opportunities for people in farming families and businesses including farmers, farm managers, and employees. It is focused on improving strategic farm management capabilities that lead to making good, timely decisions, especially when facing adversity.
