The objective of the proposed thematic assessment of invasive alien species and their control is to assess: - the array of such species that affect biodiversity and ecosystem services; - the extent of the threat posed by such species to various categories of biodiversity and ecosystem services, including impacts on agrobiodiversity and food, human health and livelihood security; - the major pathways for and drivers of the introduction and spread of such species between and within countries; - the global status of and trends in the impacts of such species and associated management interventions by region and subregion, taking into account various knowledge and value systems; - the level of awareness of the extent of invasive alien species and their impacts; and - the effectiveness of current international, national and subnational control measures and associated policy options that could be employed to prevent, eradicate and control invasive alien species.
