Describe the results/achievements of the actions taken: 
In relation to raising awareness and technical and scientific activities focused on supporting the implementation of the EU invasive alien species regulation, IUCN Secretariat along with the SSC ISSG have worked with the EC to produce awareness raising material, manuals, guidance and other scientific and technical outputs focused on IAS. In additon a member of Coalition Clean Baltic (Green Federation "GAJA" (Poland)) produced a Manual on combating invasive alien species (IAS) by anglers and hunters. IUCN have also published the first batch of IUCN Environmental Impact Classification for Alien Taxa (EICAT) assessments on the IUCN Global Invasive Species Database, and worked with the International Maritime Organisation through its GEF GloFouling Project to produce guidelines on management of biofouling on recreational sailing vessels. The Comité national de l´UICN, France have also launched an analysis of the impacts of IAS on threatened species on the Red List in French overseas communities.
In relation to policy influence, the IUCN Secretariat and the SSC ISSG have continued to engage in discussions on the formulation of an invasive species target for the 2030 Global Biodiversity Framework. IUCN has also published its Global Species Action Plan which includes actions and resources to address IAS. Finally, both IUCN and the Coalition Clean Baltic have participated in the Technical Working Group on IAS which supports implementation of the EU IAS Regulation.
What challenges/obstacles have been encountered in the implementation of this Resolution and how were they overcome : 
Resource mobilisiation to support policy engagement and support for the ISSG for EICAT assessments. IUCN Secretariat policy engagement and support to the ISSG for EICAT assessments for has been overcome through alignment of current project activities.
Briefly describe what future actions are needed for the implementation of this Resolution: 
1. There needs to be considerable increase in policy engagement beyond the Global Biodiversity Framework and EU IAS Regulation.
2. More resources need to be found to support IUCN in the assessment of alien species impacts through the application of EICAT, and IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
3. The establishment of a global alliance to coordinate action on IAS eradications on islands
4. A significant increase resorce mobilisation to increase scale and scope of IAS eradications, and develop and enhance island biosecurity measures
Are these actions planned for yet:
