to develop regional capacity to contend with the current invasive species problem and to respond to new threats as they arise.


Scoping trip - The meetings facilitated by the scoping award will be crucial in defining the realistic scope of the full project and identifying the core competencies of each organisation. Discussions between UK representatives with key personnel from within government to the community level will ensure that all stakeholders are involved and responsibilities agreed. Visits to the field sites will allow for achievable goals to be set within the timeframe of a Darwin project.
