About the taskforce

Prevailing drought conditions in several Queensland regions have exacerbated the financial issues faced by some of the state's farm businesses. As a result, some stakeholders have sought additional assistance for affected farmers from the Queensland Government, particularly focused on debt.

The Queensland Government has initiated a range of actions to address rural debt issues faced by farm businesses in Queensland, including the establishment of a Rural Debt and Drought Taskforce.

This independent taskforce examined debt issues faced by rural Queensland farm businesses, called for submissions from the public and will propose policy responses for consideration by the Queensland Government.
