On-farm productivity and riparian recovery program

In response to the impact of heavy rainfall and flooding following ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald in early 2013, the Australian and Queensland governments jointly funded a range of measures to aid recovery. The aim of the Ex-tropical Cyclone Oswald On-farm Productivity and Riparian Recovery Program was to help the most heavily impacted primary producing communities in Queensland resume production.

It was jointly funded under natural disaster relief and recovery arrangements, with the Queensland Government contributing $10 million and the Australian Government contributing $5 million.

The recovery program delivered 26 projects, providing assistance to landholders on 2,121 properties. All disaster recovery projects undertaken under the program were completed within budget, and all regional NRM bodies submitted audited financial statements for their projects.
