National Invasive Alien Species Strategy for Trinidad and Tobago

TT Draft Strategy

This Strategy is primarily targeted at government agencies as well as private stakeholders. It aims to engage not only nature conservation agencies but also all sectoral agencies with responsibility for activities relevant to IAS prevention or management.

The strategy also recognizes the range of stakeholders involved in the movement and use of alien species (industry and trade, transporters, retailers, resource managers, the public) and the contribution that competent non-governmental organizations (NGOs) can make to prevention, detection and mitigation. 

The Strategy promotes the development and implementation of coordinated measures and cooperative efforts throughout the region to minimize adverse impacts of invasive alien species (IAS) on Trinidad and Tobago‚Äüs biodiversity, economy and human health and wellbeing.
