Namibian Invasive Alien Species Working Group

Working Group Activities

Action plan

The NIASWG has drafted an Action Plan which has four main components:

  1. Prevent the import of potentially invasive alien species into Namibia;
  2. Stop the spread of existing invasive alien species within Namibia;
  3. Actively manage, control and, where possible, eliminate existing invasive alien species within Namibia;
  4. Establish an inclusive institutional mechanism to collectively implement the above Plan.
