Managing Pathways - the South African Context
Nomahlubi Sishuba - Department of Environmental Affairs
The Government is adopting the precautionary principle in managing invasive alien species, wherein prevention is given more priority as it is proven to be more effective and cheaper than management of established invasives, thus making exclusion of invasives by border control the first line of defence.
Prevention works by identifying pathways and establishing four barriers, namely, pre- export, pre border, at border and post border rapid response.
