Back to Business Program Impact Assessment

In response to the devastating impact of the 2019/20 bushfires on Australian red meat producers, Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) launched the Back to Business Program to provide support for their journey to recovery. This project will provide an impact assessment of the Back to Business Program, to assess the effectiveness of program delivery and to quantify the triple bottom line benefits attributable to producers who made practice changes after participating in the program. It will also provide recommendations for future recovery programs.
