Submission to the Review of the Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity (IGAB) discussion paper

Resources |

A submission to the independent review of Australia’s intergovernmental agreement on biosecurity (IGAB) in response to a call for comments on a discussion paper in May 2016. The submission was submitted in July 2016 and endorsed by seven state and national conservation organisations.

The submission urges greater attention to environmental biosecurity, structural changes to the operation of the National Biosecurity Committee, the greater use of science-based decision making, the application of the precautionary principle and more timely decision-making and funding for environmental biosecurity interventions. Attached to the submission was our proposal for Environmental Health Australia.
