IDB: the message from UN

In his IDB message of May 22, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon said: “… The most cost-effective and feasible method of control is prevention. To be successful, this strategy requires collaboration among Governments, economic sectors and non-governmental and international organizations. A country can only prevent invasions if it knows which species may invade, where they may come from and the best management options for dealing with them…” Download IDB booklet (Eng)
