Reduce the Introduction of Invasive Alien Species by 50% and Minimize Their Impact

Eliminate, minimize, reduce and or mitigate the impacts of invasive alien species on biodiversity and ecosystem services by identifying and managing pathways of the introduction of alien species, preventing the introduction and establishment of priority invasive alien species, reducing the rates of introduction and establishment of other known or potential invasive alien species by at least 50 per cent, by 2030, eradicating or controlling invasive alien species especially in priority sites, such as islands.

GSAP SKILLS rationale

Invasive alien species (IAS) are a major threat to native species, especially on islands and in freshwater systems. Eradication or control of such species can result in rapid recovery of native species and habitats, and technological and methodological advances mean that such interventions are feasible at increasingly large scales.

Rationale

GSAP

Invasive alien species are a major threat to native species, especially on islands and in freshwater systems. Eradication or control of such species can result in rapid recovery of native species and habitats, and technological and methodological advances mean that such interventions are feasible at increasingly large scales.

GSAP SKILLS

Actions recommended in the GSAP cover four main areas: polices, strategy and legislation; controlling pathways of introduction of IAS; eradication and control of the most harmful species; building capacity.

Actions

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

6.1. Enact strategies, policies, and legislation to reduce impacts of invasive alien species on native species.

6.2. Control pathways of introduction of IAS, particularly the most harmful species.

6.3. Eradicate, or control, IAS that have the most harmful impacts upon wild species.

6.4. Build capacity, stakeholder engagement and public awareness of the impacts of invasive alien species.
