Event Overview

Dieback Information Group (DIG) Conference

Bringing together the latest in scientific knowledge, best land management practices and industry innovation in the Phytophthora science and management space.

This year’s conference theme is “Seeing the Forest for the Trees” – selected to recognise the importance of holistic management for Australia’s forest ecosystems, and the pivotal role that environmental biosecurity and disease hygiene play in the health of these landscapes. The timing of these discussions aligns with the launch of the conservation-forward 2024-2033 Forest Management Plan, as well as rising global and national emphasis on recognising natural capital in the policy space. 

Join us in person or online!

The DIG Conference 2024 is available both in person and online. Join our audience of national and international Dieback stakeholders from universities, government and non-government agencies, consultants, extractive industries, forestry organisations and land care groups, among others. Speakers across these sectors will deliver a range of presentations to showcase a diverse range of Phytophthora Dieback science and management talks, and content on other disease threats to natural ecosystems. 

National Forestry Day

To promote this year’s fantastic theme, DWG has partnered with the Australian Forest Products Association, aligning the conference date with National Forestry Day to promote the role of disease and pest management in the ongoing discussions around forestry resources and ecosystem health.
