Invasive Species, Climate Change and Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: Addressing Multiple Drivers of Global Change

Invasive Species, Climate Change and Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: Addressing Multiple Drivers of Global Change

Published by therese7990
This report is targeted at policy-makers, particularly those responsible for developing
climate mitigation and adaption strategies that address issues like conservation,
ecosystem services, agriculture and sustainable livelihoods. It focuses on the primary
linkages between invasive species and climate change, as well as the secondary
and tertiary interactions of their corresponding impacts. Finally, the enclosed
recommendations are intended to provide guidance on the best ways to integrate
invasive species prevention and management into the consideration of climate
change responses across a range of sectors.
