Feedback on environmental biosecurity roundtables

Resources |

The Invasive Species Council strongly supports national environmental biosecurity roundtables convened by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and the Department of Environment and Energy in 2016 and 2017. The roundtables are one important way of realising the recommendations of the IGAB review to give the community a ‘stronger role and voice in further developing the national system’ and to ‘focus on environment and community as well as industry partnerships’ (recommendation 8).

The main challenges are to engender broader NGO participation (in the forums and the national biosecurity system) and achieve improved biosecurity outcomes. A set of eight recommends are offered to maximise the value of roundtables for participants and to deepen the relationship between government and the community and environmental sector.
