New Zealand

Recent policy initiatives in New Zealand relate to sustainable development and natural resource management issues, including water management, climate change and biosecurity control. In the area of biosecurity, the government made efforts to improve early detection and effective eradication by integrating all biosecurity organizations into MAF Biosecurity New Zealand. To streamline food safety efforts, the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA) was established as a new department, separate from the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
