The analysis "Evaluation of pathways for exotic plant pest movement into, within, and out of the Greater Caribbean Region", is a collaborative effort between the Caribbean Invasive Species Working Group (CISWG) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The objective of this analysis is to contribute to an improved understanding of pathways of exotic pest movement as they pertain to the Greater Caribbean Region, thereby helping CISWG to enhance or refine the Caribbean Regional Invasive Species Intervention Strategy (CRISIS) for preventing the introduction or spread of exotic pests. The scope of the pathway analysis includes nearly all countries bordering the Caribbean Sea and all terrestrial, non-vertebrate, plant pests. Among the pathways evaluated in the context of this analysis are: airline passenger baggage, international mail, people movement, maritime cargo, and wood packaging material. Some of these topics are discussed in other papers published in these proceedings.
