Dominican Republic IAS Project Profile

In the Dominican Republic this Project has as its main objective to increase the approach to tackling Invasive Alien Species (IAS) through strengthening existing national measures, and through the promotion of a cooperation framework to develop strategies for the entire Caribbean region. It also seeks to develop a National Invasive Species Strategy (NISS), which provides guidelines and mechanisms to address threats posed by invasive species in all systems (i. e. Aquatic, Marine and Terrestrial). Similarly it also seeks to create awareness about the negative impact of invasive alien species on endemic species.
