Exotic Disease Compensation Review Behaviours Project, part1 rapid evidence assessment - SE4307

The purpose of this work is to conduct a Rapid Evidence Assessment to provide evidence on the impact of current exotic disease compensation policy on animal keeper behaviour and the likely effectiveness of different compensation measures in terms of promoting positive disease risk management practice.
Systematically review the existing social science evidence to identify:

(a) the relationship between exotic disease compensation and biosecurity (both in an outbreak and in ‘peacetime’); and

(b) the other factors that most influence how quickly animal keepers report exotic disease and carry out other biosecurity measures
