The Australian Cricket Bat Willow Project
The Constitution For The Project (Web Version)

The original Constitution has had two further ammendments and these have been incorporated in this web version.
Currently, relevant sections are:-
Section 1. Definitions and Interpretations.

Paragraph 1.1
(xx) "Unavoidable Event" means an act of God, strike, lock out or other interference with work, war declared or undeclared, blockage, disturbance, lightning, fire, drought, earthquake, storm, flood, explosion, government or quasi-government restraint, exploration, prohibition intervention, direction, or embargo, unavailability or delay in availability of equipment or transport, inability or delay in obtaining governmental or quasi-governmental approvals, consents, permits, licences, authorities or allocations, or any other similar cause which is beyond the reasonable control of the person relying on the Unavoidable Event;

Clearly “drought” is an unavoidable event.

Paragraph 29.7
Unavoidable Events
To the extent permitted by Law, if the Responsible Entity is prevented from performing its duties under this Constitution or the Law due to the occurrence of an Unavoidable Event then the Responsible Entity is not liable to the Growers and nor is the Responsible Entity is not liable for any loss or decrease in value of Project Property.

The Responsible Entity, being Australian Cricket Bat Willow Plantation Services Limited, as a result of an unavoidable event has been prevented from performing its duties under the Constitution.

Unless something is done in the short term, many of the trees will die if they are not supplied with adequate water.
