Provision of resources

This section sets out the obligations on Parties relating to the funding of activities and associated with IAS issues and capacity building. There are no apparent synergies between obligations regarding the funding of activities. However these obligations generally encourage developed country Parties to provide support to developing country Parties and those with economies in transition to the implement of IAS activities. The CBD offers continuance between the obligations on capacity building throughout their thematic programmes.

It should be noted that other modules contain resources sections. While they do not contain activities specifically mentioning IAS, it is recommended to check these sections for additional provisions generally on the provision of resources.

The Global Invasive Species Programme (GISP) has published a number of background documents, which can be downloaded from their website.
