Prevent, detect, control

CABI's Action on Invasives programme focused on strengthening national and regional capacity to respond to emerging invasive pests. CABI helped countries to identify and manage risks posed by invasive species and improve coordinated response to invasions through effective communication and deployment of sustainable agricultural technologies.

Social impact studies conducted through the Action on Invasives programme assessed the costs of invasive species on farmers' livelihoods. The programme also analysed national and regional capacities to prevent, detect and control invasive species in order to protect and restore agricultural and natural ecosystems, and provided support to countries in improving them.
