Community Drought Resilience Forum for the Wheatbelt

Online Community Engagement Software

Project Overview

SHARE YOUR TWO CENTS TO WIN ONE OF FIVE $100 MASTERCARD GIFT CARDS

Whether you're a farmer, a business or a community member drought is a common occurrence that has impacts across Western Australian communities. A new consultation project under the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund will draw out the Wheatbelt's needs and priorities to help inform future investments.

If you live or operate in the Wheatbelt of WA we need your help to identify innovative drought projects to guide future investments in our region. These plans will identify priority actions to build resilience to drought in agriculture and allied industries in the Wheatbelt.

Our survey takes approximately 15minutes to complete and every one completed will go into the draw to win one of five $100 Mastercard gift cards. You can also keep scrolling to tell us your great idea for drought resilience on our forums or on the Ideas Wall. The survey is open until 30 June 2022.

This survey can be taken anonymously. However, please note, that if you choose this option we will be unable to enter you into the prize draw as we require contact information to get in touch with winning entries. Terms and conditions apply.

This program is jointly funded through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund and the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.

Wheatbelt NRM is working with the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, through the Wheatbelt Development Commission on this project. The project will talk with communities to gauge attitudes toward drought and contribute to a Drought Vulnerability and Resilience Framework for the Southern Wheatbelt region.

The Resilience Framework has been developed by project advisory groups from the Mid-West, Wheatbelt and Great Southern. It underpins the Regional Drought Resilience Plan which is designed to capture the overall experiences of drought across this vast region and uncover innovative ways to build resilience across agricultural industries.

Wheatbelt communities will have the opportunity to share their drought experiences through online surveys, one-on-one interviews and community group meetings. The consultation period has already commenced and closes at the end of June.

This program is jointly funded through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund and the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
