This year’s Cellebrations

The CBD Secretariat encourages all parties to the Convention and all organizations that deal in some way with the issue to organize activities and events to celebrate the IBD and to take advantage of it to raise public awareness and showcase their work to prevent and manage invasive alien species.

Ethiopia will cellebrate the Day by carrying out different activities such as organizing a one day workshop and field visits to areas affected by invasive alien species.

This site will carry case studies and examples of invasive species and action against them and will carry information on actions that we can all take to help combat the problem. Information materials posted on the site will include a booklet on IAS, a poster, a logotype for use by stakeholders and organizations celebrating the IBD, a photo gallery as well as information and education materials targeted at children and youth.
