Regional Climate Guides

The Providing Farmers with Regional Weather and Climate Guides project is part of the Australian Government’s Drought Assistance Package, announced by Minister Littleproud 19 August 2018. The project will help farmers to improve their ability to make quantitative risk management decisions, by creating localised guides that provide farmers and regional communities with facts about the likelihood, severity and duration of key weather variables that affect the resilience of their businesses and communities.
