Dairy Biosecurity Risk Evaluation Framework for DairyNZ

DairyNZ tasked us to help develop a Dairy Biosecurity Risk Evaluation Framework (D-BRiEF), to rank biosecurity risk organisms. The motivation for this interdisciplinary work was driven by the need to identify the greatest biosecurity risks in order to better allocate resources and prioritise organisms that pose the biggest threat to the industry. This work included a wide range of tasks including the development of a quantitative risk model, design and delivery of online surveys, expert workshops, data analysis, literature reviews, national and international stakeholder collaboration as well as an IT analysis.
