Australia's Biosecurity Future: Unlocking the Next Decade of Resilience (2020-2030)

[Australia's Biosecurity Future 2020]

This 2020 report is a follow-up to the 2014 "Australia's Biosecurity Future" report. This report describes actions needed to create an ideal future for biosecurity in 2030.


This report, released in 2020, is a follow-up to the 2014 report entitled "Australia's Biosecurity Future: Preparing for Future Biological Challenges." This report describes an ideal 2030 future state of biosecurity in Australia and actions needed in the agricultural, environmental, and marine sectors to reach that state. Both publications are publicly available in English. While the key recommendations and observations are tailored to an Australian audience and Australia’s unique biosecurity environment, some of the discussion may help inform the national biosecurity agenda of other nations. 

This report was published by Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), the Australian government agency responsible for scientific research. CSIRO includes several facilities, including the Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP), a world class animal health facility. The ACDP is currently developing new tools for biosecurity education that may be included in this library in the future. Until then, we included this document to highlight existing resources from the Australian groups.
