Request for Quotation – Building trust in Australia’s commercial kangaroo industry

Request for Quotation – Building trust in Australia’s commercial kangaroo industry

The RFQ is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced individuals or organisations to understand and respond to community perceptions of Australia’s commercial kangaroo industry.

The RFQ closes 5:00pm (AEDST) 22 February 2019.

Background

Australia’s rural industries share common reputational risks. Erosion of community trust can lead to more difficult regulatory and market environments, and negatively affect industry productivity, profitability and sustainability. Events that impact one industry’s reputation can spill over and affect the image of another industry or the sector as a whole (both domestically and internationally).

Australia’s commercial kangaroo industry is one of the most sustainable wild harvest operations in the world. Commercial harvest is an important tool for managing populations of Australian kangaroos and is an important economic contributor. Building and maintaining community trust and acceptance is critical for the ongoing sustainable management of the industry.

The RFQ is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced individuals or organisations to understand and respond to community perceptions of Australia’s commercial kangaroo industry. The project aims to provide a benchmark of community sentiment around the social, environmental and economic impact of the commercial kangaroo industry, and develop strategies for how industry may work to improve the level of trust, and acceptance, Australians have in the commercial harvest of kangaroos.
