Global Biosecurity 2010: safeguarding agriculture and the environment will provide a forum for stakeholders from across the biosecurity spectrum, including researchers, industry representatives, policy makers, primary producers and importers/exporters, to:

workshop, network and exchange knowledge on agricultural and environmental biosecurity
facilitate engagement and cross-fertilisation of ideas between researchers and their end-users (industry, regulators and other end-users), and
build cross-disciplinary networks across all biosecurity related disciplines.
The program will focus on agricultural and environmental biosecurity and includes conference streams examining:

DRIVERS — What makes biosecurity so important?

THREATS and IMPACTS — Understanding risks is the first step in analysing and planning to address biosecurity issues.

KNOWLEDGE — Accessing the right information at the right time can be a challenge, with so many agencies and organisations involved across the biosecurity continuum. What information is available, how are you sharing it and what systems underpin it?

SYSTEMS — Policy, regulation and operational procedures underpin all biosecurity planning and responses. Is a best practice approach possible?
