About the Project

Hello and thanks for agreeing to participate in this survey!

You have been selected to take part in this important survey about water risk and security for Australia. The only eligibility requirement to participate in this survey is that you manage a working farm in Australia. Please note that you do not need to use irrigation on your farm to participate. 
By completing this survey you will have a chance to win one of five  $200 shopping vouchers OR a pair of RM Williams Boots.
In addition, for each completed survey we will be donating $10 to the CWA Drought Relief Fund.

What is the project about?
The Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF) is undertaking this research on behalf of the NAB on how the financial sector can better support and reward growers for improved water risk management.

The output from this research will be used by academics, policy makers and bank professionals to improve financial and environmental risk decision making, specifically around water scarcity.

You are free to withdraw your participation at any time during this research (before submitting your survey responses) without giving any reason. 

How will responses be used?
All individual responses will be kept confidential. Information provided during the survey may be aggregated and reported in publicly available documents and scholarly research papers.  

The final reports and academic papers will be made available to the general public on the ISF website, scholarly journals and via media releases.

NAB and drought
NAB is very aware of the challenges and unpredictability of life on the land and the impact of drought on its customers, employees and the wider community. In July 2018 NAB made a number of announcements in support of farmers and their families along with a suite of customer relief measures.
