Subject: IAS meetings on Monday May 14th

Dear colleagues,

I hereby would like to invite you to participate to two different IAS meetings that will be organised in Brussels on Monday 14th May:

1. Morning - BFIS meeting (science oriented): presentation of the ISEIA protocol and discussion about potential uses of black and watch lists,
2. Afternoon - Meeting of the IAS contact group (policy oriented).

1. The BFIS meeting will be dedicated to a presentation of the new ISEIA protocol (Invasive Species Environmental Impact Assessment), together with the results of working group meetings wherein a few non-native vascular plants, insects, fishes, birds and mammals were assessed. Discussions will focus on the scientific accreditation of black and watch lists and on potential uses of those lists to prioritise prevention and mitigation actions.

This meeting will take place at 9:30 at BELSPO, 8 rue de la Science/Wetenschapsstraat, 1000 Brussels (near the Luxemburg railway station and the Trône metro station). Please confirm your participation to e.branquart at mrw.wallonie.be

2. The contact group meeting will involve representatives of both the BFIS and the administrations of federal and regional levels. Among other points on the agenda: 
- organisation of a round table with the horticultural sector, 
- inventory of actions taken to prevent/mitigate biological invasions in Belgium, 
- impact assessement of IAS in Belgium and neighbour areas,
- designation of a national contact point for invasive plant issues related to the European Plant Protection Organization.
