The North Queensland Livestock Industry Recovery Agency (NQLIRA) held a series of stakeholder events across Northern Queensland throughout August and September. The sessions look to inform the development of a strategy for the long-term recovery and resilience of areas affected by the 2019 monsoon trough.
These events included community roundtables held in Julia Creek, Richmond and Winton, a NQLIRA-led ‘Regional Solutions’ discussion with NWQROC representatives in Normanton (3 September) and a QRA-led flood planning workshop (9-10 September).
We were pleased to have the opportunity to put the case for the North West’s long-term future when the Federal and State governments are focused on the region like never before.
Australian, Queensland and local governments all need to work together to support the long-term resilience and prosperity of North West.
