Australian Government Drought Response, Resilience and Preparedness Plan
Department of Agriculture, Australian Government
released 7 November 2019
As a consequence of climate change, drought is likely to be longer and more severe in some regions and over broader areas. It means that farmers and communities in some regions are likely to see drought more often. Those that have been managing drought for many years may now see it intensify beyond their lived experience. Ultimately, the nation could see some areas of Australia become more marginal and/or unproductive.
