The Decade of Biosecurity is a core program of work that is being developed under the banner of Biosecurity 2030 to place the spotlight on the importance of biosecurity for all Australians.
The Biosecurity Collective has been working to advance the Decade of Biosecurity 2030 Project for 3 years – an ambitious and critical initiative to transform our national biosecurity system to protect all Australians. A powerful alliance is needed to confront the unprecedented challenges of invasive species and win strong leadership, broader collaborations and innovation. Our vision for the future is that all Australians are actively engaged in building a stronger national biosecurity system.
Through the Decade of Biosecurity, we seek to put industries, businesses, research and community members at the centre of the biosecurity system to pave the way for transformational change over the next decade; building a stronger biosecurity system and generating a ‘biosecurity mass movement’.
By 2030, we want to ensure sustainable investment mechanisms for essential biosecurity, a strong understanding of biosecurity in all Australians and greater involvement in biosecurity surveillance across the country.
The initial focus areas for the Decade will be based from the original plan launched at the 2019 Symposium and include:
- Mobilising a 25-million strong biosecurity mass movement.
- Sustainable investment.
- Supporting partnerships.

The next step in our journey is to develop a work program which brings together views and aspirations from across the biosecurity system.
