Norway is on track to achieve its national biodiversity targets to combat invasive alien species by 2020 | Key highlights from Norway’s Sixth National Report and post-2010 NBSAP

In its Sixth National Report (6NR) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and post-2010 National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP), Norway identifies invasive alien species (IAS), as one of the major threats to biodiversity. Other threats include land conversion and land-use change, climate change and pollution. This best practice highlights the efforts undertaken by Norway, as described in its 6NR and the latest NBSAP, to address IAS in an era of globalization and climate change.
