Projects Themes and Priorities

Since the SW WA Hub’s inception, several projects with Future Drought Fund investment and hub involvement have been initiated. Most align with SW WA Hub themes and priorities – identified following a comprehensive and consultative process.

The below table demonstrates how projects align with SW WA Hub themes for each of the hub’s four agro-ecological zones.
