Action on Invasives Annual Report 2019
Published: March, 2020
This report describes the progress of Action on Invasives during 2019, highlighting progress, lessons learned and next steps in each of the four work packages. It also reports evidence of early outcomes of the programme.
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.
