Strategic plan

Welcome to the department's Strategic plan 2019-2023 (2020 refresh). The DAF strategic plan sets our vision and our priorities for the next 4 years. It is a core planning document for the department. With the help of our industry, research and other government partners, our staff will promote a sustainable and innovative sector and develop rural businesses to add value to communities and the economy.

Our department's strategic plan looks to take advantage of opportunities and outlines the key risks to achieving our objectives, along with the contributing strategies, values and key performance indicators. It sets a clear direction for working towards a productive and profitable agriculture, fisheries and forestry sector, on a sustainable basis.

Our collaborative efforts help realise the Queensland Government’s Our Future State: Advancing Queensland’s Priorities:

  • create jobs in a strong economy
  • keep Queenslanders healthy
  • protect the Great Barrier Reef and
  • be a responsive Government.

The COVID-19 pandemic has ongoing impacts. The plan is reviewed regularly to ensure it is responsive, and aligned with evolving and new government priorities.
