A stronger regional Australia
Regional Australia faces perennial weather extremes, such as droughts, floods, heatwaves and frosts. However, the frequency and severity these events are predicted to increase, straining the ability of Australia’s regional communities and industries to thrive.
Low rainfall years have been shown to significantly reduce agricultural profitability and productivity, while many regional and rural communities become threatened with the risk of running out of town water (“Day Zero”). We see an opportunity to create a stronger regional Australia, equipped to successfully live and operate in our dynamic and changing world.
