GISIN is a key partner in the implementation of Article 8(h) "Prevent the introduction of, control or eradicate those alien species which threaten ecosystems, habitats or species" of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and associated decisions of the Conference of the Parties. Reference.
The Global Invasive Species Information Network (GISIN) was formed to provide a platform for sharing invasive species information at a global level, via the Internet and other digital means. A group of collaborators lead by the United States Geological Survey, are developing the GISIN as a Web-based network of databases that are connected by a common set of data types. The resulting network, or GISIN, provides increased access to data and information that will in turn help detect, rapidly respond to, and control invasive species.
