WG1 Tasks

Task 1: Undertake a systematic review highlighting successes and failures of EWRR including:

  • evaluation of European and non-European eradication attempts building on the research completed within PRATIQUE for plant pests and diseases.
  • existing mechanisms of early warning through systems in Europe (e.g. EPPO).
  • availability of species identification tools.

Task 2: Develop guidelines for establishment, upgrading or harmonising existing databases integrating with EASIN to meet the needs of EWRR. 

Task 3: Summarise possible approaches and tools for rapid dissemination of IAS notifications from primary data holders (experts, citizen science) and between countries coupled with reporting in the context of SEBI 2010 and other relevant policies.
