This report uses the NSW Biosecurity Strategy (2013-2021) and its goals as its overarching framework. The strategy guides biosecurity management in NSW and is regarded as a significant achievement.
It provides a narrative of the work being conducted in NSW, reviews future trends and promotes recommendations for ongoing biosecurity performance measurement.
In this first NSW State of Biosecurity Report, the focus is on developing a ‘baseline’ set of indicators and providing an assessment where data is available and robust. The report identifies areas where adequate data sets are not currently available, but could enhance future reporting.
