Indicator description

Community weed management is a vehicle for helping to deliver a coordinated, shared and strategic approach to weed management in Tasmania. The community weed strategy is the document stakeholders develop in order to guide and prioritise their activities.

Why is it indicative

Community weed management strategies promote a coordinated, shared and strategic approach to weed management in Tasmania.

This indicator suggests that if an area/region is under a management plan, which has been developed by the community because of their desire/motivation to control weeds in a particular area, then weed management is taking place in a strategic and coordinated manner.

What does the data show

Nineteen of Tasmania's 29 municipalities are either fully are partly covered by community weed management strategies. The remaining 10 municipalities are without community weed strategies.
