The IAS Expert Registry is one of the tools of the Belgian Forum on Invasive Species. It allows to keep track of the experts and practitioner's community active on IAS in Belgium. It also serves as a basis for the identification and selection of experts within the framework of activities related to the Belgian implementation of the EU Regulation on IAS.
Additionally, the registry aims to bring together management expertise on specific species by allowing practitioners (nature reserve managers, people from governmental bodies or private companies, social economy etc. working in IAS eradication and control). This way, this register will serve to bridge the gap between science, policy and management in the field.
