These workshops provided a forum to explore existing arrangements for the eradication of bee pests and to examine possible alternatives to lessen the impact on industry. They also provided an opportunity for all stakeholders to engage and gain an understanding of each other’s perspectives on the issues around eradication efforts for bee diseases. The beneficiaries of these workshops were the participants, who came from diverse backgrounds including Australian and State and Territory governments, research organisations, the Australian Honeybee Industry Council and a subgroup of pollination reliant plant industries, and also the organisations they work within.

This project is part of the Pollination Program – a jointly funded partnership with the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC), Horticulture Australia Limited (HAL) and the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF). The Program is managed by RIRDC and aims to secure the pollination of Australia’s horticultural and agricultural crops into the future on a sustainable and profitable basis. R&D in this program is primarily to raise awareness to protect pollination in Australia.
