But such limitations are even more prevelant among the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs), making it imperative to promote collaboration between the diverse and fragmented network of organizations that hold such data.

Title Regional and national alien and invasive species data mobilization and capacity building in the Pacific
Identifier BID-PA2016-0005-REG
