Preparing with hindsight

Reflections of real farmers from before, during and after drought.

Preparing with Hindsight was a community engagement project conducted by Hub partner - the Farming Systems Group Alliance – consisting of FarmLink Research, Central West Farming Systems, Riverine Plains, Southern Growers, Irrigated Cropping Council, Irrigation Research and Extension Committee and Holbrook Landcare Group.

Preparing with Hindsight resulted in the collection of experiences of a range of landholders through the stages of pre-drought, in drought and drought recovery from the 2018/19 event. It will contribute to the Hub’s focus on working with farmers and communities to identify how we can increase our resilience to drought.

A series of seven case studies was created as a part of the engagement project.
