8 Implementation of National Weeds Strategy 1997-2005 Over the seven years of implementing the National Weeds Strategy (NWS), the Committees have been highly successful in progressing the majority of the NWS strategies. Of the twenty-six strategies listed in the NWS, thirteen have been completed, two are nearing completion and ten have had significant work undertaken, noting that these latter strategies are ongoing and will never be completed. During the last two years of this report a regional model for addressing Natural Resource Management issues was implemented as this structure was not addressed in the original NWS, therefore it should be considered in any revision of the strategy. This report covers numerous achievements but overall the NWS has resulted in a changed culture and more strategic approach to the management of weeds across Australia. The Weeds of National Significance (WoNS) species have become icons, with focused case studies showing the weeds community what can be achieved when science, policy, regulation and social change strategies are combined at a national level in order to manage weed species on the ground. These 20 WoNS strategies represent an outstanding example of national cooperation on the part of the state, territories and Australian Government and serve as a model for national weed management programmes. The 2010 WoNS report can be accessed via the link below.
