Overseas Territories Group Conference 2014

Lessons to be Learnt from Invasive Species Mitigation and Management in the British Overseas Territories

16 December 2014

Royal Astronomical Society, Piccadilly



This conference will look at the practical lessons that can be learnt about mitigation and management of invasive species, drawing on experiences in the UK Overseas Territories.

The event is aimed at providing an overview of the current situation in relation to the status of alien species on these islands and how they are being managed. It will provide a platform for dissemination of experiences with speakers working in the Overseas Territories or working with partners there.

There will be an opportunity to hear from practitioners and research teams on current programmes running in both the marine and terrestrial environments of the Overseas Territories.  A series of presentations and case studies will be combined with the opportunity for some lively discussion.

There will also be a presentation on the Darwin Plus Initiative and a Question & Answer session on the current priorities and how to apply.
