Struggles for Invasive Alien Species Management in Japan

Organizer: GOKA, Koichi

Following “Guiding Principles for the Prevention, Introduction and Mitigation of Impacts of Alien Species” adopted by CBD-COP6, Japan established “the Invasive Alien Species Act” and has implemented the effort to prevent damages of ecosystem from invasive species since June 2005. And in 2010, CBD-COP10 succeeded in establishing “Aichi Target” as the post 2010 targets for world-wide conservation of biodiversity, including the Target 9: By 2020, invasive species and pathways are identified and prioritized, priority species are controlled or eradicated, and measures are in place to manage pathways to prevent their introduction and establishment. We have just started a project for eradicating the invasive species. We would like to introduce the state of invasive alien species in Japan and struggle for eradication of them.
