Dr Robert Faggian doesn't want research gathering dust, or government talk fests with no action.

So, in his keynote address at a recent event we hosted in Bendigo, Victoria, Rob looks at local government responses to climate adaptation. He also outlines some of his own research - which uses climate modelling - to empower action in agriculture.

This is a short bonus episode from the Vic Drought and Innovation Hub's 2023 Think Tank event, 'Are we drought ready?'.
