The most relevant goal from the programme of work for forest biological diversity is Goal 2: To reduce the threats and mitigate the impacts of threatening processes on forest biodiversity. Objective 1 of this goal is to prevent the introduction of IAS. One activity from objective 4 is also relevant here. Objective 4 aims to prevent and mitigate the adverse effects of forest fires and fire suppression. Activity (i) urges Parties to develop mechanisms, including early warming systems for exchange of information related to the causes of forest biodiversity loss such as IAS.
