The Invasive Plants and Animals Policy Framework will provide comprehensive guidance for future policy, planning and community activity specific to invasive plants and animals in Victoria. The framework will operate within the directions set out in the BioSecurity Strategy for Victoria, launched in June 2009.
Agriculture Minister Joe Helper has approved the release of a new draft of the policy framework for consultation. The consultation period will be from 6 August until 16 September 2009.
