GLISPA together with IUCN, the Invasive Species Specialist Group, Island Conservation and UK Government held a side event on islands and invasive species (“Showcasing actions to protect island biodiversity from invasive alien species – facilitating future projects”).

This side event raised awareness of new and emerging actions and best practices to support islands and island states, in particular SIDS, in developing new projects to protect biodiversity by addressing invasive alien species and identified opportunities and alignment for islands project development for GEF 7 focusing on invasive alien species.
