This forum is intended to facilitate discussion and collaboration on a group project, referred to by its nickname “Project X”, that emerged from the IPRRG 2018 meeting in Taichung, Taiwan. The aim of Project X is to produce a multi-authored peer-reviewed journal paper as a thought-piece, exploring the issues associated with the pest risks stemming from the burgeoning Asian trade volumes and connectivity. The scope will include the identification of emerging risks, and analytical commentary on the changes to biosecurity systems that might be required to cope with the emerging challenges.
A full prospectus for the project is available here.
As the project evolves, we’ll add sub-forums for each team working on aspects of the project. Please stay tuned, and in the meantime, feel free to post questions and comments.
