Wild Matters has been contracted to develop a National Established Weed Priorities (NEWP) framework, building on and learning from the Weeds of National Significance (WoNS) initiative. The aim is a revitalised, long term, strategic approach to reducing the spread and impacts of established weeds.
Working with the Environment and Invasive Committee’s Weed Working Group, the aim is to deliver a co-designed national program that takes account of regional priorities and systems and integrates with broader land management issues and actions.
- Stakeholder engagement on established weed management, including facilitation of workshops
- Draft NEWP Framework (endorsed in principle August 2022)
- Establishment of an interim NEWP steering group
- Development of an implementation plan to guide Framework investment, nomination/assessment processes and governance.
