Mainstreaming Invasive Alien Species: Prevention, Control and Management
Mauritius’ unique biodiversity evolved in the absence of ground-dwelling mammals and other functional groups found in continents thus rendering it extremely vulnerable to IAS, which constitute the greatest threat to the country’s biodiversity today.
The Global Environment Facility through a USD 3.8 million grant will enable the Government of Mauritius to:
1. Build capacities to prevent, control, eradicate or manage IAS effectively
2. Strengthen legislative policy and institutional framework
3. Improve knowledge and increase awareness on the risks posed by IAS and the need for biosecurity
This project will review and update the current strategy, and help the country sustain actions adopted under the National Invasive Alien Species Strategy and Action Plan (2010 – 2019).
