Community Impacts Program – Southern Rangelands video project

Project Name: Community Impacts Program – Southern Rangelands video project
Aim: To showcase and disseminate stories of drought resilience triumphs from select pastoralists in the Southern Rangelands of Western Australia
Project Duration: 2023-2024
Funding body: This project was funded through the Future Drought Fund’s Community Impact Program which is managed by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal. SRPA partnered with the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council to secure funding for this project, but is managing the delivery of this component independently.

Executive Summary:

Our Southern Rangelands pastoralists, facing the challenges of one of the harshest environments globally, operate in a landscape marked by less than 200 mm of annual rainfall and highly variable seasonality. Historically accustomed to battling through droughts, our pastoralists are now leveraging cutting-edge technology to revolutionize the management of their landscapes, businesses, and regional social fabric.

The project's primary objective is to showcase and disseminate stories of drought resilience triumphs from select pastoralists in the Southern Rangelands of Western Australia. Through compelling videos, we highlight not only the transformative impact of adopting innovative technologies but also how these advances integrate with emerging markets such as Carbon and Natural Capital. These narratives underscore how embracing technology not only enhances day to day management of the pastoral enterprises, but also fosters income diversification and contributes to the restoration of the natural environment. Join us in celebrating the ingenuity and success stories of our Southern Rangelands pastoralists as they navigate the frontier of sustainable and innovative pastoral practices.
