Drought Resilience Self-Assessment Tool

Australia is increasingly vulnerable to drought and the impacts of changing climate conditions. The challenge of managing drought and other extreme climatic events means our primary producers need tools to plan and manage their livelihoods. The Drought Resilience Self-Assessment Tool (DR SAT) is one of several programs announced under the Future Drought Fund to address this challenge.

The Drought Resilience Self-Assessment Tool will provide accessible information and an online drought resilience assessment capability for primary producers. It will bring together best available data, information and analytical methods to deliver new strategic insights to inform decisions.

It will aim to strengthen the social, economic and environmental resilience of primary producers and communities by delivering information and support that is meaningful and actionable at the farm level.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu have been selected to design and deliver the tool within a select number of pilot regions over the next 18 months. A prototype will be available for user testing by June 2021, with fully developed tool roll out in pilot regions by December 2021.
