CABI Declares War on Invasive Aliens (Aug 4, 2016)
At its triennial Review Conference of Member Countries in Egham, UK, on 26-27 July, CABI launched a major new initiative to protect vulnerable rural communities in the fight against invasive alien species. Building on its 100-year track record in invasive species management, CABI will deliver a unique global programme to support 50 million vulnerable African and Asian farming families impacted by species that are out of control and threatening their livelihoods. This will link with, and build upon, the highly successful CABI-led Plantwise programme, which has already reached nearly 5 million farmers in 34 countries.
Identification Keys and Factsheets for Invasive Alien Species for Eastern Africa Published by BioNET - EAFRINET (Nov 7, 2012)
East African Network for Taxonomy.
Under the UVIMA Project a list of over 100 of the most serious invasive plant species in the region was produced. This list was used as a basis for the production of a key to 119 species of invasive plants. There are also fact sheets to each of these species. The key is designed to be used as a simple identification tool for conservationists, extensionists and some farmers, to provide an overview of the invasive plant species and possible management measures and to provide first port of call for somebody interested in invasive plant species in the region (links to more detailed sources of information are provided).
