The Australian Government is seeking a service provider to deliver the Drought Resilience Self-Assessment Tool (DR SAT).

Following the nations increased risks and vulnerability to the impacts of drought and changing climate conditions, the DR SAT will be one of several programs announced under the $5 billion Future Drought Fund.

The Drought Assessment Tool is set to provide accessible information and an online drought resilience assessment capability for primary producers.

The initiative 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.

Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management David Littleproud said “It will bring together best available data, information and analytical methods to deliver new strategic insights for primary producers in order to enhance decision-making capabilities.

“Whilst Australian farmers are highly skilled at managing climate variability, the increasing magnitude, intensity and frequency of drought and extreme climate events is an unprecedented challenge that requires additional support.
