Solutions for invasive species

Urgent action on invasive species is needed and CABI is contributing to the fight through both its research and development work. We develop management solutions for invasive species in our labs and then help to implement them in the field. Further key components are our dedicated invasive species resources and knowledge tools, which help countries prevent, detect and control outbreaks.

Action on Invasives

CABI’s global Action on Invasives programme aims to protect and improve the livelihoods of rural communities through an environmentally sustainable, regional, and cross-sectoral approach to managing invasive species.

Other CABI projects

CABI has been working on solutions for invasive species for over 100 years. We research major invasive species problems globally and our scientists are world leaders in developing biological controls and other management solutions.


Our cutting edge research plays a major part in tackling invasive species. CABI papers and reports on invasive species are widely cited and used to inform national and international invasive species policy and strategies.
