National Target 9: Implementation of prevention and eradication programs for invasive alien species (IAS)
National Target 9 was prepared following the Aichi Target (AT) 9 framework as a reference for formulating a number of action plans and activity programs related to the control of Invasive Alien Species (IAS), which have been adapted to national conditions and needs.
Referring to the IBSAP 2015-2020, one of the threats to the preservation of biodiversity is the presence of IAS which can change natural ecosystems and cause degradation and even habitat loss. The introduction of IAS into the ecosystem may occur, naturally and unnaturally, through human activities including trade and transportation nationally and internationally. Given that the IAS are a cross-cutting issue, cross-sector collaboration and specific regulations are needed in the management of IAS to protect biodiversity. In addition, it is also necessary to compile a comprehensive reference for relevant sectors in the form of the National Strategy and Management Action Plan for IAS so that the management of IAS will be carried out more precisely, effectively and efficiently by each sector in accordance with its authority, while maintaining coordination and integration nationally to bring .positive impact to the environment, health, as well as social and economic aspects of society, at both local and national level
