Dear Sonia and Tim,
This meeting sounds very interesting!
I probably  will not be able to attend because at the moment I am still trying to save korina and I am not representing any authority. In my federal state the responsible authorities do not want to stop invasions, they only want to fulfil the EU-Regulation on the lowest possible level. We argue constantly but they have the money.
What is your experience, are there authorities who do more? Is there hope that my kind of work will be paid for in the next years?

We had such a severe drought here that many native trees are dying, so I started to save invasive tree species, like Ailanthus and Robinia, from being felled in our town Halle. I wonder whether the climate crisis will change our views on invasions, what do you think?

Kind regards, Katrin

Dear colleagues,

The Belgian Forum on Invasive Species (BFIS) and the RAPID Life Project (Reducing and Preventing IAS Dispersal) are co-organising an event in Brussels on 18/12/2019 to facilitate the exchange of information on IAS prevention and management between stakeholders in different European countries. The event will look at the ways in which the EU Regulation 1143/2014 on IAS is being implemented in different EU Member States, and will bring together EU Life Projects working on IAS in different European countries in order to share information and encourage collaboration.

Dr Andy Sheppard<https://people.csiro.au/S/A/Andy-Sheppard> (CSIRO Australia) is our keynote speaker and will discuss new technologies for IAS prevention and control.
