What is DroughtHub

NSW DroughtHub provides a one-stop online destination for information on a vast range of services and support available to primary producers, their families and communities to prepare for and manage drought. Almost all the state is now in mild to severe drought and the NSW Government is committed to working closely with farmers, their families and rural communities. DPI makes every attempt to ensure the information supplied is current, however the individual circumstances of DroughtHub users should be taken into account when considering the linked services.
