Yesterday, an online meeting with the beneficiaries La Palma and SRAAC, responsible for implementing Action C11 – Design, Essay and Evaluation of Pilot Island Prevention, Early Warning and Rapid Response Operational Frameworks for Invasive Alien Species (Corvo island and La Palma), took place with the objective to structure the coordination and implementation of the tasks to be carried out on these 2 islands, namely:

– Definition of operational tasks/protocols to be developed to support external stakeholders (e.g. port/airport authorities for control of incoming materials);

– Definition of the communication plan targeting the prevention of introduction among relevant target audiences (e.g. local population, farmers, incoming tourists, schools/institutions to be involved in the early warning system);

– Use of an app that will allow for the early detection, on a citizen science basis.
