Our objectives

The REUFIS aims to:

  • Enable sharing of information and experiences, coordinate activities on forest invasive species, raise awareness in eradication, control and management of forest invasive species, encourage publication and sharing of research results, early detection and monitoring strategies, and taxonomic support, and provide a communication link for all levels within and between member countries.
  • Collaborate and cooperate with existing international and regional organizations, such as the FAO International Plant Convention (IPPC), the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) and dealing with forest invasive species, strengthen national capacities to manage forest pests, and provide decision-makers with baseline data for making informed decisions.
  • Advocate compliance with phytosanitary regulations and provide policy advice on movement of forest invasive species.
