CEBRA Research Webinar #1: Estimating trading partner exposure risk to new pests or diseases
Have you ever wondered how trading partners’ exposure risk to new pests or diseases impacts Australia’s biosecurity system? How to develop a strong and efficient biosecurity system while allowing for increased global trade and human movement?
The speaker discussed how CEBRA and the department analysed integrated border interceptions, trade data, pest occurrence records and climate suitability models to estimate the exposure risk of potential and current trading partners obtaining an established population of a new high threat pest or disease
The research uses brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB; Halyomorpha halys) and Australian interception data as a case study.
