WRI recommendations inform Central NSW Councils response to ongoing drought.

Central NSW Joint Organisation of Councils are considering recommendations made by WRI to improve drought preparedness to support their communities in the continuing drought conditions.

A meeting that was held in Parkes by Central NSW Councils, the Chair of the Central NSW Joint Organisation of Councils, formerly CENTROC, Cr John Medcalf has said 'Governments need to maintain and extend drought assistance programs. Drought conditions continue to worsen in some of the worst-hit areas of the region.'

The Drought Sub-Committee of Central NSW Joint Organisation are using recommendations from an Issues Paper prepared by WRI for the Central NSW Joint Organisation to help improve, manage and assist the conditions of the drought that continue to affect our regional communities.

Drought is still an ongoing concern across all our regional communities, earlier this year WRI conducted a poll asking "Do you think enough is being done about drought?" Eighty six percent of the people who took part in the survey believed not enough is being done about drought. The top responses said more planning, assistance and addressing climate change could be done better.
