Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
The Environment and Invasives Committee replaces the Invasive Plant and Animal Committee, which was formed by merging the Vertebrate Pests Committee (VPC) and the Australian Weeds Committee (AWC) and will carry out the functions of these former committees. The VPCs role was to provide coordinated policy and planning solutions to pest animal issues and was also responsible for implementing the Australian Pest Animal Strategy. The AWCs role was to provide an inter-governmental mechanism for the identification and resolution of weed issues at a national level.
