CABI’s stand will highlight the impact invasive species have on millions of people living in poor rural communities around the world, in particular through losses to their crops and to the natural environment their livelihoods depend upon. Invasive species take over critical farmland, damaging crops and reducing the grazing area for livestock. For example, across East Africa, eight of the major invasive species cause economic losses of well over $1.5bn a year, affecting livestock and crops such as maize and cassava. Delegates will be invited to work with CABI on the issue. For more information visit www.invasive-species.org.
