The National Environment and Community Biosecurity RD&E Strategy (NECBRDES) is being updated.
The Centre for Invasive Species Solutions will be running a series of online fora to enable participation in the revision of the strategy. Firstly, there will be a series of 2-hour, sector-based focus groups between the 9-11th February, 2021, to discuss biosecurity RD&E needs in each sector.
The discussion from these sessions will feed into a larger interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral workshop to be held on the 25th of February, 2021, when the revised strategy will be developed. More information on this even can be found here.
