Workshops have been held in all 13 CMAs to determine regional priorities for weed control. Representatives of major stakeholders in the region and experts with local knowledge of weed impacts and sites under threat from widespread weeds attended. Participants considered the current impact of each widepsread weed species on biodiversity in the region and assigned a priority of high, medium or low.
What will happen after the workshops?
- A draft report outlining the process used to develop regional priorities for weed control was provided to the CMAs in July 2009.
- The interim list of widespread weeds and biodiversity at risk was also distributed to workshop attendees and other people who have indicated interest in being involved for comment.
- Site nominations received after the workshops will be analysed and collated to produce an interim list of priority sites for each CMA. Find out how to nominate a site in your area.
- Comments received will be used to produce a final list of priority sites for each CMA.
