During the process of developing the new Strategy, the VSTWP took the opportunity to assess the achievements of the Working Party over the past five years. A quarter of the actions from the previous strategy have been completed and 46% of the actions are in progress or on-going. There was also an increase in community engagement through
social media platforms, best practice guides, extension programs, agricultural shows and field days. These achievements have informed this Strategy, to ensure the Working Party is continuing to successfully engage with communities to raise awareness of the impacts of serrated tussock and improve its management.

The VSTWP has been working since its inception in 1995, to create collaborative partnerships with stakeholders, government, and communities to better manage serrated tussock. We aim to continue to maintain existing partnerships and foster new ones, to raise community awareness and increase the capability to prevent and manage serrated tussock and reduce its impact on affected communities.

Chair of the VSTWP, Lance Jennison, said ‘the Strategy represents the Working Party’s continuing commitment to supporting and collaborating with stakeholders to manage and reduce the impacts of serrated tussock. By implementing this Strategy, the Working Party are actively preventing significant future economic, environmental and social impacts on communities, stakeholders, and the state of Victoria’.
