National Established Weed Priorities (NEWP) Framework

Client:  Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry

Date: 2020 – 22 (in progress)


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.

Services provided:

  • 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.
