Inquiry into the 2022 Flood Event in Victoria 

Submissions » Inquiry into the 2022 Flood Event in Victoria 

The Victorian Farmers Federation is a recognised organisation in the emergency management sector. As there is no government agency in fire, flood and storm management with detailed knowledge of agricultural impacts, the view of the VFF should be sought by Emergency Management Agencies. 

The VFF urges the inquiry to consider the immediate and long-term support needs of flood-affected farmers. Financial assistance, access to mental health services, and tailored support programs are essential to help farmers recover from the devastating impacts of the floods. The inquiry should examine the effectiveness of existing support mechanisms and recommend measures to enhance their accessibility and efficiency.
