Need

The National Carp Control Plan (NCCP) will be delivered over a large geographic area in waterways used by, among others, thousands of farmers, fishers, tourists, boaters and nearby residents. Achieving support for the recommendations included in the NCCP requires assessing potential impacts of carp control on different groups, and ensuring key stakeholders are able to access, understand and have discussions about the science being used to inform the development of recommendations for the Plan. Through completing a program of assessment of socio-economic impacts, and enabling constructive engagement with stakeholders in NCCP communication and engagement actions, this project will actively inform the design of both the communication and engagement used as part of developing the Plan, and the ultimate recommendations to government included in the Plan. This pro-active approach can enable design of a plan for carp control that incorporates actions that reduce potential for negative impacts and increase community trust in the process.

Objectives

1. Communication and engagement with stakeholders contributes to integration of stakeholder perspectives into development of the Plan
2. Potential socio-economic impacts of carp control are identified and implications for design of recommendations in the Plan identified
3. Stakeholder workshop successfully enables dialogue between stakeholders and scientists that results in better understanding of carp control challenges and opportunities
4. Discussion papers enable a wide range of stakeholders to access information about key considerations for carp control

Summary

This paper examines the potential social and economic impacts of controlling carp in Australia. As the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP) focuses on assessing the feasibility of releasing the carp virus, this paper also focuses on the potential impacts of virus release and whether and how these impacts could be mitigated.
 
Other carp control methods are referred to in the paper where they are relevant to understanding how impacts may differ depending on how carp control is implemented. The paper examines:
(i) What social and economic impacts are and how they are typically assessed at different stages of project development
(ii) The type of social and economic impact assessment (SEIA) focused on in this report: we focus on identifying how the recommendations of the NCCP could be designed to minimise negative and maximise positive impacts
(iii) The potential social and economic impacts (positive and negative) that could result from virus release, the circumstances in which they would be likely to occur, and recommendations for actions to reduce/prevent negative impacts and increase potential for positive impacts.
