Recovering from drought

What happens after the rains have fallen.


For businesses and farms, recovering from a drought can be a difficult process.

  • Take inventory and understand how the drought has affected your land, livestock, crops and finances.
  • Identify long-term plans and strategies for action. This may involve a 5-10 year plan of recovery and an understanding of what this may mean for your finances. You can access a drought recovery guide to assist your planning.
  • Learn from your experience, update your business continuity plan, assess what you would do differently next time around.
  • Find the resources and people that you need to help you in your recovery process.
