Towards establishing a Melanesia bio-security & invasive species advisory committee
Abstract: 

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the various frameworks and initiatives that exist in the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) with regards to invasive species management and how they could be utilised towards the development of a coordinated mechanism by the countries in the Melanesian region in addressing biosecurity and invasive species concerns. The terms of reference for this report can be seen in Annex 1. The benefits from a coordinated region may include enhanced economic opportunities and safeguarding the unique ecological systems and species diversity for the wellbeing of the Melanesian people.
