Abstract

Drought is one of the most severe natural disasters Australia faces, inflicting serious impacts on the agricultural industry. An Australia-wide drought monitor has been developed to provide detailed and timely data regarding drought conditions that will aid producers and policy makers alike. The Drought Monitor development was an integral part of the Northern Australia Climate Program (NACP), a major partnership between Meat & Livestock Australia, the Queensland Government and the University of Southern Queensland. This document explains the methodology used to produce the monthly Drought Monitor.
