Afrika Bombarda  

The New Vision recently posted this report about a workshop on invasive plant management in Africa. Based on a project (pdf) implemented by the United Nations Environment Programme/Global Environment Facility, the meeting included participants from Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda, and Zambia. Some of the species of concern included water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), citronella grass (Cymbopogon nardus), and lantana (Lantana camara). Organizers are hoping to promote more ecosystem-based management plans for areas impacted by these and other invasive plants, beginning with the difficult task of developing invasive plant management policies within each country.
