Future Surveillance needs for Bee Biosecurity

Summary

The construction of an appropriate risk analysis framework relevant to underpin the development of a national surveillance program to underpin border surveillance and post incursion response. The aim is to take an approach that will allow decision makers to explore the costs and risks associated with particular decisions. This framework would describe a series of possible surveillance programs, the costs associated with each and their strengths and weaknesses. The aim is to provide the endusers (DAFF and Industry) with a clear explanation of the costs, risks and potential consequences of a range of surveillance strategy options.

Objective Summary

To use an appropriate risk analysis framework that will allow decision makers to explore the costs and risks of possible decisions in regards to a national surveillance program for pests of bees. This framework would describe the possible surveillance program which the enduser industry is willing to bear and more importantly gives a clear explanation of the risks and potential consequences of a range of surveillance options.
