Review of National Blueprints for Agriculture


This project is designed to contribute key background information to two blueprints for Australian agriculture currently under development. It will do this by summarising the key features of similar plans that have been developed elsewhere in the world. Of particular importance will be learning lessons from these other national plans, especially in terms of the wholeofsupply chain perspective proposed within the NFF Blueprint which has already been adopted and integrated into many sector specific strategic plans such as those by the RDCs and state agencies in a ‘gatetoplate’ approach.
