The District‎ > ‎

Economy

This district has a very diverse economy.  40% are employed in the service economy supporting the other sectors which include agriculture, construction, manufacturing and retail trade.  While diversity tends to provide stability, a weakness in one area will affect the services sector.  Each area is has its problems – all important.

 

One that affects the agricultural sector is the recent drought.  A short drought, is a hardship, but the sector will recover.  However, these drought cycles have become more and more numerous which is indicative of climate change.

 

Whether partially manmade or not, the agricultural community needs to adapt to this change.  This is where the government can help, by helping to find new, inexpensive sources, or by providing research into how live with less water.
