×G3. The role of modelling and simulation to supporting evidence-based decision making in agriculture and biosecurity: science meets policy

This unique session will bring together scientific researchers and policy-makers to discuss how we can best use models to support decision-making for agricultural and biosecurity policy. We invite academic and government researchers to present their applied research, and we will invite a panel of policy-makers from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources working in the area of agriculture and biosecurity to lead discussion on the topic of the role that models and simulation can play to inform decision-making, both now and in the future.

Key topics: Agriculture, Biosecurity, Policy making, Decision support
