Community Resilience and Wellbeing

The resources on this page are of relevance to SA farmers and regional communities. They assist in decision making and potential practice change to build drought preparedness and resilience. Further information on community resilience and wellbeing is available through the SA Drought Hub team, including the Node Coordinators. 

We understand that drought can impact people in many ways, if you or someone you know needs support we recommend the ifarmwell “what to do in a crisis” support tools.
