Malcolm Turnbull: Climate Change Contributes To Drought

Farmers will receive immediate financial support to help them and their communities fight the drought

In all, the Australian government will now have provided some A$576 million in drought relief. The NSW government has also provided more than $1 billion in assistance for farmers.

The package will also include extra funding for mental health initiatives, with Australian farmers being at a significantly higher risk of depression and suicide than urban dwellers.

Drought affected farmers have a mixed reaction to the Federal Government's emergency relief package with some welcoming it and others saying it's not enough and too hard to access.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the Government stood ready to help farmers as drought conditions worsened. It appears we're going into a dry Spring and a tough Summer.

"It's vital that we help farmers and families that are dealing with the stress and pressures drought brings", Simson said in a statement on August 5.

"It is created to keep body and soul together, not created to pay for fodder", the Prime Minister said. "But we can ensure that farming families and their communities get all the support they need to get through the drought, recover and get back on their feet".

"They shouldn't feel as if they're a burden - they've paid plenty of taxes over the years, " Mr Kerin said.

The PM said Australia's global emissions reductions targets will help farmers.

Queensland has allocated more than $670 million to grants, loans, infrastructure projects and drought climate adaptation programs.

"We are, as we have all said, the land of droughts and flooding rains, but we haven't had a drought this bad for a very, very long time, since the Bureau of Meteorology says 1965. When farmers do it well the whole nation benefits, when farmers do it tough, as they are now the whole nation suffers", he said during the press conference.
