BIOPAMA Observatory approach to Invasive Alien Species – Eastern and Southern Africa Region


The Biodiversity and Protected Area Management (BIOPAMA) programme aims to address threats to biodiversity in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, while reducing poverty in communities in and around protected areas.

The IUCN SSC Invasive Species Specialist Group within the framework of the BIOPAMA project –Eastern and Southern Africa Region is working on a project focused on identifying and building baselines of the presence of alien and invasive alien species on sites of high biodiversity value in the project area and their impacts on native species and ecosystems. The aim is to cover at least 150 sites of the most biodiversity value, such as World Heritage Sites, Ramsar wetlands of International significance, National Parks etc.

All data and information collated will be deposited in the East African Community Observatory for Biodiversity and Protected Area Management

The IUCN SSC ISSG Project team would like to request Protected area managers, practitioners, experts and researchers to fill in this brief questionnaire aimed at discovery of knowledge related to biological invasions in the project areas and building links with stakeholders
