Effective citizen action on invasive species: the institutional challenge
Link to publisher version (URL)
This report summarises the key areas where reform is needed and 'puts on the table' priorities and proposals that should be considered. Its focus is institutional issues that affect voluntary citizen action for the control of invasive species (particularly major vertebrate pests) in rural and peri-urban areas. Complementary publications from the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre Program 4 ("Facilitating Effective Citizen Action on Invasive Species") provide further analysis. These documents include our report on the extensive community consultations that informed this Discussion Paper and our report on reform recommendations. The overall purpose of these evidence-based reports is to stimulate discussion, agreement and eventual reform to strengthen community resilience against the economic, social and environmental costs from the devastating spread of invasive species/animals.
