The Queensland Government has committed to review drought programs in Queensland.
The Independent Panel held regional forums and sought written submissions throughout September and October 2018 and provided their recommendations to the Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries on 31 January 2019. The Panel would like to thank all submitters for their contribution to the Review. A copy of the report and Queensland Government response can be found here.
The current Drought Assistance Package and other government programs will continue to run for the duration of this drought.
