Develop a plan of action
The next step is a detailed outline of how the plan will be put into action. The group needs to decide who will be driving the operation, who will carry out what tasks and when, how information will be collected and managed, who will pay the costs of management and any other details related to implementation of the plan.
It is also essential to define how information will be communicated among stakeholders and participants (eg through regular meetings, newsletters, field days) so they have real input and ownership of the program, rather than it being conveyed in a ‘top-down’ manner.
Implement the management plan
Strategic pest management is when control is carried out according to the plan of action. Coordination of control with adjacent land managers is the best approach, and is more likely to occur if key stakeholders have been involved in developing the plan from the start. It is vital to keep everyone motivated and on track during this stage of the plan to ensure that the desired outcomes are achieved.
