National Invasive Species Strategy, Action Plan and Policy Guidelines for Uganda
This project aims to reduce and possibly remove barriers to the management of IAS through effective implementation of CBD Article 8(h) in 4 pilot countries (Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda, Zambia), using a multisectoral ecosystem approach. In each country an enabling policy environment will be promoted through the establishment of appropriate institutional arrangements to ensure that IAS strategies are mainstreamed; stakeholder awareness of IAS issues will be raised and access to necessary information provided; prevention and control programmes will be established, including ecosystem management at pilot sites where IAS threaten biodiversity; capacity for sustainable IAS management will be built. Lessons learned will be disseminated for replication in other countries in Africa.

The main ideas and options for the abundance indicator and for the impact indicator are considered. A third type of indicator, the annual rate of establishment of new non-native species, is outlined, with provisional data presented only for England
