Regional workshops andtrainings to be carried out in Fiji specifically for the eradication of African Tulips.Special technical meetings / workshops to explore other ways of eradication and share ideas from others regions on successful eradication programs for similar species. Obtaining the biological control -agent test results against the other plant species which is available in Fiji and arefound in the same locality as the IASThe applications of bio-control agents to controlling IAS plants and weeds in Fiji must be actively pursued and feasible mode of applications should be practiced. Proper training to be provided to the field staffs in order to avoidadminister lethal doses of weedicides and to use the bio-agents appropriately. Meeting international standard (ISPM 3 on biologicalcontrol) as a standard for implementation of the activitiesEnsure that possible negative environmental impact of biological control are properly investigated before being introduced to any environment.
