The NFBSS provides a vision towards the establishment of a coordinated National Forest Pest Surveillance Program.
The three overarching objectives of the NFBSS are to:
- Improve forest pest surveillance coordination, capacity and capability across stakeholders.
- Maximise resource efficiency through stakeholder partnerships.
- Optimise forest surveillance efforts across the biosecurity continuum using a risk-based approach.
A series of goals and actions with defined outcomes are described to enable stakeholders to successfully establish a National Forest Pest Surveillance Program over 5 years.
