Launch of the Assessment Report on Invasive Alien Species and their Control

The unveiling of the Invasive Alien Species Report will take place on 4 September 2023 at 14:00 CEST at the IPBES headquarters in Bonn, Germany and online. A link to the live stream will be available at

The Report has been a joint effort of 86 top international experts from 49 countries who started working on it more than four years ago. The three co-chairs that led the process are Prof. Helen Roy (UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, United Kingdom); Prof. Aníbal Pauchard (Faculty of Forestry Sciences, University of Concepción and Institute of Ecology and Biodiversity, Chile); and Prof. Peter Stoett (University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Canada). The Report captures the diversity of existing knowledge on invasive alien species, referring to scientific articles, governmental reports, and indigenous and local knowledge.

Media accreditation for the launch of the Invasive Alien Species Report is already open. Journalists and media organisations that are not yet on the IPBES media list can receive the invitation to accredit by subscribing here.
