Action on Invasives Annual Report 2018
Published: March, 2019
This document reports progress under each of the programme’s work packages, including both species- and/or country-specific activities and broader systems strengthening activities.
The global cost of invasive species is estimated at US$1.4 trillion per year – close to 5% of global gross domestic product. Invasives disproportionately affect vulnerable communities in poor rural areas, especially in developing countries which depend on natural resources, healthy ecosystems, trade and tourism for their livelihoods.
