Development of Best Practices and Dissemination of Lessons Learned for Dealing with the Global Problem of Alien Species that Threaten Biological Diversity

Project Summary

The objective of this project is to examine current tools and approaches that are utilized to recognize, evaluate and mitigate against invasive species in order to determine best practices and to disseminate this information. This project takes a comprehensive approach to the invasive species problem, i.e., a scientifically-based global strategy and action plan. However, the specific aspects of the project for which GEF funding is requested relate only to a portion of the global strategy for dealing with invasives, i.e. that of defining and disseminating the best practices.
