Future proofing the biosecurity of New Zealand
Biosecurity is widely viewed by industry to be critical to the economic prosperity of New Zealand. This article is an overview of the challenges this country faces in preventing and managing pest, weeds and diseases. The next 10 years will see dramatic changes in how scientists, industry and the general public contribute to the biosecurity system. These changes should lead to a more efficient and coordinated approach, but they will also increase uncertainties about the way we predict and respond to the future risks we might face.
