    Rapidly accelerating trade and travel have allowed both intentional and unintentional movements of plant and animal species between different parts of the globe. The consequences are often unexpected and disastrous. Invasive alien species are regarded as one of the leading threats to natural ecosystems and biodiversity given that the effects are usually irreversible. These proceedings report on the outcome of a meeting held in Bogor, Indonesia from 2 to 5 December 2014 on harmonizing risk assess ment and management of forest invasive alien plant species in Southeast Asia. The report identifies gaps in regional capacities and identifies solutions and good practices aligned with international standards. Conclusions and recommendations as well as country reports and resource papers are included in the report.

    The purpose of this project is to support national efforts to strengthen the institutional framework for the prevention, early detection, control and eradication of Invasive Alien Species (IAS) and Potentially Invasive Alien Species (PIAS), emphasizing those that threaten environments aquatic species, and implement the National Action Plan of the NSCBD 2010-2020, in its strategic Line 5, which recognizes exotic species as one of the direct causes of the loss of biological diversity.

    Terminal evaluation of the project "Strengthening of governance for the protection of biodiversity through the formulation and implementation of the National Strategy on Invasive Alien Species
    Project code: GCP/ARG/023/GFF - GEF ID: 4758
    2023
    Also available in:

    The project, implemented in Argentina between July 2015 and June 2022, had the objectives of developing a framework strengthened governance that allows the effective protection of biodiversity against the impacts of invasive alien species (IAS) and enhances the current and future socioeconomic benefits derived from the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity. The evaluation estimates that as a result of the implementation of the project, Argentina is better prepared to face the challenge of IAS management and has made progress towards enhancing the socioeconomic benefits derived from the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity by controlling IAS.
