The WA Government is investing $15 million into an Agriculture Climate Resilience Fund to help WA farmers and industry to respond to the challenges of climate change.

The Fund will support projects that will help farmers develop resilience to changes in climate, and the consequential changes in market expectations.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) has consulted with WA farmers and industry to co-design the Agriculture Climate Resilience Fund (ACRF) to ensure:

  • we understand all of the challenges farmers and industry face, and
  • investments are targeted to achieve maximum benefits.

The fund has supported Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) activities to support WA farmers to become climate resilient. 

In 2021/2022 the Carbon Neutral Grains Pilot – a research partnership with CBH Group and Wide Open Agriculture was undertaken with the funds. 

Current projects:

Projects commencing in 2023: 

  • Small Water Cycle research project
  • Carbon Science Unit 

Details about these projects will be available soon.

Further projects are awaiting funding submissions to be assessed.
