21.09.18 By

Accelerating climate change is exacerbating drought conditions across parts of southern Australia, with 100 per cent of New South Wales now drought declared, along with parts of Queensland.

In this episode of the Climate Council Podcast, we speak to young farmer Anika Molesworth, a PHD student in agricultural science, who hopes to one day take over her family’s farm.

Aneeka says farmers are on the climate frontline, witnessing and experiencing the impacts of worsening climate change on agriculture and the land, first hand.
