Description

Australia is the driest continent on the planet. In many parts of this nation drought is a fact of life, and at just about any point in time, somewhere in Australia will be experiencing one. This program examines the effects of drought, with emphasis on its effects on society, the economy and the agricultural sector. Featuring interviews with environmental scientist Dr Terry Walshe, together with vegetable farmer Peter Schreur and Mildura-based farmers Bob McCarthy and Neil Bennett, it explores the nature of drought, the climatic causes of drought, the environmental effects and strategies to manage it. This is an excellent resource for students of Geography, Environmental and Agricultural Sciences.
