The Palaszczuk Government committed to work with industry to consider future drought models in Queensland and has engaged an independent panel who have been tasked to looking at what can be done during, and prepare for future droughts through a Drought Program Review.

The Panel will be holding regional forums and seeking written submissions throughout September and October 2018. The review will be undertaken according to its terms of reference which require recommendations to be provided to the Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries by 31 January 2019.

The Panel will be consulting with the recently appointed Drought Commissioners about the current conditions.
