Invasive Non-native Species

In January 2020 the Welsh Government hosted the 4th INNS seminar for officials from the British-Irish Council Member Administrations in Cardiff Bay. The workshops covered four main themes related to the prevention of introduction and spread of non-native invasive species across the administrations :  (i) Pathways (ii) Contingency Planning (iii) Rapid Response and (iv) International Policy. The seminar was highly successful and feedback from delegates has been very positive. A number of ideas and action points for future collaboration were identified and these will be presented to Ministers at the next  BIC Environment Work Sector Ministerial meeting in May 2020 in Jersey.
