Jamaica Draft Invasive Alien Species Strategy and ACTION PLAN

This document is not designed to serve as a comprehensive, all‐encompassing strategy. Instead it is intended to identify and outline a strategic direction for the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), Jamaica’s environmental regulatory body to develop an effective National Strategy for the prevention, control, management and where possible eradication of invasive alien species (IAS) which threaten the viability of native species. To complete this activity, the document should be reviewed by a multidisciplinary team of specialists, managers, and researchers. This document represents the first step in the creation of an effective strategy as part of a four year regional project to be funded by the Global Environment Facility in 2009.
