Global change and NZ biosecurity: risks and economics of future climates and trade patterns

Biosecurity outcome

A framework that identifies plant border biosecurity research, capability and investment priorities and their benefits for NZ in the context of the global climate change. The framework will consider aspects of climate impacted global and NZ food production and trade, invasive species risk profiles and will be validated by two case studies.

Science outcome

New knowledge and methods to determine and measure the influence of global climate change on biological invasiveness incorporating parameters associated with primary production and trade, and validated with at least two case studies. The costs and benefits of targeted interventions including their trade-offs, will be established in the context of future economic, environmental, social and cultural parameters.
