Climate Smart Farming Toolkit

Farmers are stewards of the land and manage it carefully. As an industry, agriculture is facing increasing challenges due to extreme weather like, flooding, bushfire, drought and extreme heat.

In many cases, farmers and peak bodies are already well progressed on the road to climate resilience and emissions reduction. To keep farming forever, farmers need access to tools and resources which will help make sure their business and our industry can thrive in the face of continued climate challenges.

FCA has collated and organised the Climate Smart Farming Toolkit to support farmers. The Toolkit contains useful resources and information to help farmers maintain their knowledge on climate-related challenges, build on work farmers are already doing, or get started on implementing Climate Smart farming practices. Climate Smart farming is not just about emissions accounting and reduction, but can also build wider ecological resilience, improve soils, and increase productivity.
