Drought Risk Indicator App

The Drought Risk Indicator is an easy-to-use web app for the region’s rural community.

The Regional Council designed the tool – the first of its kind in New Zealand - to build drought resilience in the community with funding from Ministry for Primary Industries and in partnership with the Hawke’s Bay Rural Advisory Group

It is an easy way for farmers to get a pulse check on the key climate conditions on their farm and wider area and supports farmers to make decisions early and plan for drought.

The tool shows a ‘traffic light warning system’ for drought based on live rainfall, soil temperature, soil moisture, and evapotranspiration data from the council’s 50 climate stations around the region.
