Audit of responsibilities - WC04032

Policy and operational responsibility for non-native species is spread across various Departments and agencies. With better strategic coordination, effort and resources would be more productively targeted. The project will comprise a comprehensive assessment of Governmental organisations to identify and describe their responsibilities relating to this subject, the level of resources devoted to these responsibilities, and the balance of priorities in allocating resources. This will enable better informed decisions by a new GB coordinating mechanism, and in due course the constituent bodies themselves possibly in line with a high level GB strategy.
