Regional Drought Resilience Planning is one of the programs under the $5 billion federal Future Drought Fund, a fund that invests in building resilience to drought for farmers, allied industries, and regional communities. 

Regional Drought Resilience Plans are community-led plans that present the historical and expected future impacts of drought in the focal regions, based on the best available evidence. The plans also contain an assessment of drought risk and adaptation pathways, based on expert input and extensive stakeholder consultation. Finally, plans include a pipeline of investible drought resilience projects that address the specific needs and priorities of agriculture and allied industries and inform future investments in drought resilience and agricultural adaptation in the regions. 

In Western Australia, during the foundation year of 2021-22, drought resilience plans were developed in the Great Southern, Mid West and Wheatbelt regions.
