Marine and Freshwater Invasive Non-native Species Workshop

Defra hosted a workshop on July 9, 2014, to focus on Defra-relevant aspects of marine and freshwater invasive non-native species (INNS), and consider wider links and implications of INNS in the UK.

The workshop provided the opportunity for participants to share information on a range of topics including:

  • current and forthcoming policy drivers for INNS
  • current responsibilities with respect to INNS within Defra
  • short presentations on projects currently underway on INNS
  • future/emerging evidence priorities and potential collaboration opportunities
  • how to take decisions on funding work on INNS while maintaining consistency across Defra
  • next steps

Presentations from the workshop are available below:
