    Aquatic Invasive Alien Species – Top Issues for their Management
    Outcomes from the IFI/EIFAAC Freshwater Invasives – Networking for Strategy Conference, Galway, 9–11 April 2013

    In November 2014, a new EU Regulation to address Invasive Alien Species (IAS) and protect biodiversity was published. This entered into force across the EU in January 2015. The aim of the Regulation is to ‘prevent the introduction of, control or eradicate alien species which threaten ecosystems, habitats or species’. In an effort to provide focus to the Regulation prior to its publishing and to identify the major issues relating to Invasive Alien Species in Europe, the views of invasive species experts from around the world were sought. These were consolidated at an international conference (Freshwater Invasives - Networking for Strategy (FINS)) that was held in Ireland in April 2013. A major outcome from this meeting of experts was the production of the Top 20 IAS issues that relate primarily to freshwater habitats but are also directly relevant to marine and terrestrial ecosystems. This list will support policy makers throughout the EU as preparations are made to implement this impor tant piece of legislation. A further outcome from the conference was the formation of an expert IAS Advisory Group to support EIFAAC in its work on invasive species.

    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.

    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.
