This chapter describes and critically evaluates the ‘state-of-the-art’ for national policy and management efforts designed to prevent the arrival of invasive species. Preventing the introduction of invasive species will almost always be less costly than managing and adapting to species once they arrive. Although this is widely recognized by biologists and economists, only a handful of countries have embraced this approach in their policies for environmental invaders. As nations work to meet their obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), it is likely that the number of countries with programs for preventing invasive species will grow.
