This workshop was the sixth in a series of seven regional workshops coordinated by the Global Invasive Species Programme (GISP) and its partners, the World Conservation Union-IUCN and CAB International, in 2001-2002. Each workshop had three primary objectives: to raise awareness of the invasive alien species problem and opportunities to manage it; to strengthen and expand cooperation between sectors (especially agriculture and environment), among governments, and between governmental and non-governmental entities; and to lay the groundwork for the development of a comprehensive regional strategy to address invasive alien species.
In order to meet these objectives, the workshop had three introductory sessions in plenary to review the issue and relevant regional mechanisms, three working group sessions to forge cooperation and outline a regional strategy and a final plenary discussion to develop a regional statement and recommendations and define next steps.
