The National Fruit Fly Strategy includes wide ranging recommendations to improve the management of economic fruit flies within Australia and minimising the risk of exotic fruit flies entering and establishing.
To give effect to the National Fruit Fly Strategy, the NFFS Implementation Action Plan was developed in 2010. That plan detailed 15 project areas for action and which has been a focus for promoting and reporting the efforts undertaken by governments, research groups and other stakeholders.
To further support a coordinated and strategic approach, the Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre developed the National Fruit Fly Research, Development and Extension Plan (RD&E Plan). The RD&E Plan was delivered in 2015 and sought to provide a basis for a long-term view of fruit fly RD&E within Australia to support fruit fly affected industries. The RD&E Plan clarified the outcomes required by various stakeholders and remains an important step in promoting collaboration on fruit fly RD&E.National Fruit Fly Strategy 2008 National Fruit Fly Strategy Implementation Action Plan 2010 National Fruit Fly RD&E Plan
