On 13 October 2022, the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry released the National Lumpy Skin Disease Action Plan.
The plan has 8 objectives and 27 activities aimed at improving Australia’s preparedness for a potential incursion of Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD).
It was developed with extensive consultation between Australian government, state and territory governments, industry groups and non-governmental stakeholders.
Representatives from the Commonwealth, state and territory governments and industry peak bodies will share responsibility for the implementation of the plan. The Animalplan Steering Committee plays a key role in overseeing the implementation of the Plan. This includes providing guidance on the prioritisation of activities as well as identifying risks, advising on implementation, new opportunities, or any revisions required to the Plan. An Industry Advisory Group has also been developed to provide advice to DAFF on the implementation of the Plan, including the prioritisation of activities and potential impacts on industry.
Quarterly progress reports
Quarterly progress reports are developed by DAFF in association with state and territory governments, industry groups and non-government organisations.
