Project Summary:
This project aims to improve biosecurity in the SAUKOTs. Its focus will be on developing Pest Risk Assessment (PRA) procedures tailored to the needs of individual territories and on building capacity to use these. These improved procedures will make use of a new horizon scanning and pathway analysis tool currently under development by CABI. Initially, specific requirements for improved procedures will be discussed at a regional workshop and implementation tested during the second half of the project.
