A Biosecurity Science Strategy for New Zealand

New Zealand has developed some of the strongest biosecurity  systems in the world. These systems support our primary production industries, which are the cornerstone of our economic  welfare, and help us to protect our unique natural environment.
The Biosecurity Strategy endorsed by the Government in 2003 identified key expectations for biosecurity science. The Biosecurity Strategy called for more effective investment in science and more engagement with the science community in biosecurity decision making. A Biosecurity Science Strategy for New Zealand – Mahere  Rautaki Putaiao Whakamaru is a major step forward in meeting
those expectations.
This document provides priorities and a clear path forward for  biosecurity science. It identifies the need for investment in more   proactive research across our biosecurity systems. It also outlines a biosecurity science system that will be used to develop clear advice  on priority research needs and the uptake of research into the future.
