Safeguarding the environment, food security and livelihoods from invasive species using biological controls

Abstract

Non-native invasive species, such as insect pests and weeds, have a huge impact on livelihoods, food production and biodiversity around the world. CABI tackles this issue by using classical biological control which provides a sustainable and cost-effective control method and minimizes the use of pesticides. In this case study, we outline three examples from programmes where CABI has played a role, and provide results from a further five studies.
