South Coast NRM invites you to attend a drought planning workshop online on Monday, 2nd May (between 1 – 3pm). This workshop is a great opportunity to help shape a drought resilience plan for the Great Southern Region.

The plan will identify the projects and needs for our region that are essential to underpin our collective resilience to drought. This is your chance to have a say and help shape our regional response to drought.

This project is being managed by the Great Southern Development Commission through funding from Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment Future Drought Fund. The workshop will be delivered by South Coast NRM.
