1. Policy,

regulatory and institutional framework and capacity for effective IAS management



TA

1.1. Operational policy, regulatory and institutional framework established for effective prevention, control and management of IAS, and capacity in place to support implementation.
Indicators: Improvement in IAS management framework operational score, as measured by the GEF IAS TT; Strengthened national capacities in key agencies (listed under footnote 3), as measured by the UNDP Capacity Development Scorecard; Establishment and operationalization of IAS ‘apex agency’.
Baseline and targets will be estasblished during the PPG.


1.1.1. Review and update of National Invasive Alien Species Strategy (NIASS) is completed through a consultative process to ensure that it takes into account the current national policy and institutional framework, regional initiatives and global good practice in IAS management; and development of a budgeted Action Plan with specific and costed activities, timelines, and roles and responsibilities. An ‘apex agency’1 is established and operationalized with sustainable funding to provide overall national coordination on IAS.
1.1.2. Existing legislation is strengthened for more effective control and management of IAS, including specifically the Plant Protection Act (2006), Forest and Reserves Act (1983), the Environment Protection Act (2002), the Fisheries and Marine Resources Act (2007) and the Animal Diseases Act (1952)..
1.1.3 A cross-sectoral policy coordination framework is established for the incorporation of IAS issues including risk-based IAS management into the legal and policy framework of all relevant agencies at the national and inter-island levels, involving Ministry of Agro-Industry and Food Security (MAIFS), Ministry of Environment, Sustainable Development, and Disaster and Beach Management (MESDDBM), Ministry of Housing and Lands (MHL), Ministry of Tourism and External Communications (MTEC) and Ministry of Ocean Economy, Marine Resources, Fisheries, Shipping and Outer Island (MOEMRFSOI) and Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection (MICCP).
1.1.4. A technical secretariat for IAS is established, comprising a small full time staff of technical experts on a comprehensive range of IAS species, pathways, vectors and management approaches.
1.1.5 Based on the IAS assets inventory and capacity needs assessment, capacity is strengthened in key agencies and organizations (see 1.1.4) for IAS management and technical staff mandated to deal with different aspects of IAS prevention, control and management through training in key areas including international, national and inter-island laws, policies and institutions, global standards and good practice, risk analysis, and technologies and techniques for identification, monitoring and surveillance, ecological and socio-economic impact assessment, contingency planning, integrated IAS management and ecosystem restoration.
1.1.6. Financial sustainability of the apex agency and IAS operations will be secured through the development and application of new and innovative market-based and fiscal mechanisms and incentives to support IAS management (e.g. permits, registration and inspection fees, fees for quarantine or containment of suspected IAS, fees from disposal of vector material such as contaminated soils and risk assessments, revenues from the export of invasive species, and fines for IAS infractions) and by facilitating budgetary coordination between sectors and government institutions to ensure coherence investments and actions to address IAS threats efficiently.

2. Incorporation of risk-based management of IAS into pathways and ecosystem management

TA/INV

2.1. Sustainable biosecurity2 strategies for risk-based prevention and early detection and rapid response implemented for priority biological invasion pathways and species.
Indicator: Reduced entry and spread of IAS into 7 islands or island groups (mainland Mauritius, mainland Rodrigues, Agalega, St. Brandon, Mauritius northern islet PAs, Mauritius southeastern islets PAs and Rodrigues islet nature reserves) through biosecurity inspections of goods and persons who arrive on the islands by air or sea
2.2. IAS threats managed and ecosystem functions restored in selected PAs covering 541 ha (specifically, Flat Island [253 ha], Gabriel Island [42 ha], Rodrigues [46 ha], and the proposed new PA in Mourouk Valley [200 ha]) to sustain populations of 38 critically threatened species.
Indicators: (i) Improved management of effectiveness of the 5 target PAs), as measured by METT scores and threat reduction and biodiversity status progress as per the GEF BD 1 TT; (ii) Establishment of new Mourouk Valley PA, covering 200 ha; Sustainable populations of 24 critically threatened species on Flat and Gabriel Islands; Sustainable populations of 14 critically threatened species on Rodrigues3; IAS infestations reduced by 93 ha (75 ha Round Island and 18 ha on Mourouk Valley); Improved financial sustainability as indicated by Financial Stability Scorecard.
Precise baseline and targets will be estasblished during the PPG.

2.1.1.Sustainable biosecurity strategies for risk-based management of priority pathways, species and ecosystems implemented nationally and within-country by:


  • Establishing national and inter-island biosecurity priorities and resource needs, including baseline [there is currently a lack of recorded information on introductions and dates of first detection];

  • Implementing pre-border, border and post-border IAS prevention and early detection and rapid response management approach;

  • Pioneering cost-recovery schemes to contribute to the sustainability of biosecurity operations and the IAS apex agency and address market failures; and

  • Acquiring equipment and infrastructure to help ensure that priority biosecurity measures are effectively implemented.

2.2.1. Biodiversity conservation and ecological restoration of two key Satellite Islets (Flat Island and Gabriel Island) by:




  • Developing baseline information necessary for effective IAS management and planning;

  • Reviewing and implementing IAS management plans and costed operational plans and changing the protection status of the islands as needed;

  • Implementing island biosecurity measures;

  • Restoring habitat through IAS removal, planting of native species and the use of analogue species;

  • Promoting reptile and seabird conservation, and reintroducing threatened Mauritian native plant and animal species;

  • Implementing a responsible tourism initiative for ecological and financial sustainability; and

  • Establishing a conservation volunteer scheme to prevent the spread of IAS.

2.2.2. Biodiversity conservation and ecological restoration of Rodrigues PAs (Ile aux Cocos, Ile aux Sables, Grande Montagne, and Anse Quitor) by:




  • Developing baseline information necessary for effective IAS management and planning;

  • Implementing IAS management plans and costed operational plans;

  • Declaring a new PA on the Rodrigues mainland (Mourouk Valley 200 ha)

  • Implementing island biosecurity measures;

  • Restoring native forest cover by removing invasive alien plants and replacing with native Rodriguan plants in Mourouk Valley;

  • Supporting local community participation and local management of PAs through Free, Prior and Informed Consent, community participation in restoration-related activities and the development of local management committees as appropriate;

  • Implementing comprehensive business plans that accurately estimate the financial needs of PAs and options for income generation to recover costs of PA management; and

  • Establishing a system for monitoring the impact of activities on soil erosion, hydrology, and IAS distribution and abundance.

3. Knowledge management and learning




3.1. A National IAS Information System is established to inform effective IAS prevention, control, monitoring and management, in partnership with key stakeholders.
Indicators: Operational National IAS information and monitoring system and extent of access and actual usage of information in government planning and management decision making process.
Baseline and targets will be estasblished during the PPG.

3.1.1. A participatory review and survey is undertaken to ascertain the status of IAS pathways, IAS distributions, the cross-sectoral economic, environmental and cultural impact of IAS and the successes and lessons learned from past and ongoing IAS prevention, early detection and rapid response, eradication, control and mitigation and restoration.
3.1.2. A National IAS Information System (NIASIS), including a participatory monitoring network using citizen science and modern ICT and building on the Knowledge Management Framework to be developed under the "Expanding Coverage and Strengthening Management Effectiveness of the Protected Area Network on the Island of Mauritius” project, is developed and operationalized to monitor and inform risk-based management of species, pathways and ecosystems based on agreed protocols.
3.1.3. A National IAS Gateway is developed to provide rapid access and dissemination of information to enhance deployment of coordinated actions between institutional partners on IAS management.
3.1.4. A national IAS communications and awareness strategy and action plan is developed and implemented, with steps to ensure that international good practice related to IAS is embedded in policy and practice.
3.1.5. IAS tools and manuals are developed to complement training courses and for use in day to day IAS management operations (e.g. commodity inspection and treatment manuals, risk assessment manuals, early detection and rapid response decision-trees, inspection systems, monitoring, control techniques, etc.) and guidelines are developed to embed IAS issues into key sectors whose activities have IAS implications.
