The workshop will increase the capacity of enlargement countries to meet their international obligations under the Convention of Biological Diversity and increase the role of the MAES activities as crucial input to the IPBES regional assessments.

    Invasive alien species (IAS) - i.e. species that are not native to Europe and have a severe negative impact on native flora and fauna - are one of the main pressures on biodiversity in the EU and at global level.

    The workshop will focus on the expansion of EASIN, especially by including offline databases that exist in institutes or national repositories which are not accessible to the scientific community. The workshop will address data standardisation issues and protocols for sharing information.
