National RD&E Strategy for Northern Australia

NABRC was approached by the Red Meat Co-investment Committee (RMCIC) in October 2010 to develop the RD&E strategy for Queensland, the Northern Territory and the northern pastoral zone of West Australia, as part of the National Beef Production Research, Development and Extension Strategy (2010) commissioned by the Primary Industries Ministerial Council.

The national strategy aims to promote continuous improvement in the investment of RD&E resources nationally by helping to ensure that they are applied efficiently, effectively and collaboratively, and to address capability gaps, fragmentation and unnecessary duplication in the national system for primary industries RD&E.

NABRC is the key industry-agency forum with the responsibility for determining and advising on strategic requirements for RD&E activities (including education and training) in the northern Australian beef industry.

NABRC is an independent organisation that acts as the central consultative council comprising all major northern RD&E agencies and educational institutions (departments of primary industries, CSIRO, CRCs and universities) and producer representatives from states and territories.

NABRC has identified six steps to address the challenge reduced funding poses to the northern Australian beef industry, and the key RD&E priorities for northern Australia.

NABRC summarises the results of its consultation processes and key findings in the RD&E Priorities Prospectus for northern Australia (March 2012):
