RAPID: Regional IAS Management Plans (RIMPs)

Map of Britain showing the five RAPID regions: North, Midlands, East, South West, South East

What are RIMPs?

RIMPs are documents that are intended to bridge the gap between high-level strategies such as the GB NNSS Strategy (internal link) and the work done by Local Action Groups at the local level. Experts in each region have produced Regional IAS Management Plans (RIMPs) for each of five regions in England: East, Midlands, North, South East and South West. The RIMPs are intended to deliver consistent but regionally tailored recommendations on prevention, early warning, rapid response, eradication and control of IAS throughout England.
