Note on the global phenomena of invasive alien species of plants, animals, and micro organisms transplanted intentionally or unintentionally into non native habitats, where their impacts on the environment, agricultural production, health, and economies have assumed unprecedented proportions in a context of trade expansion and globalization. Having identified international assistance programs as a key pathway through which invasive species come to be introduced, the Global Invasive Species Programme conducted an awareness-raising seminar on the topic at the stakeholders' meeting of the 2001 CGIAR Annual General Meeting.
