What is a Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA)?

The Center for Invasive Species Management defines a CWMA as, "a partnership of federal, state, and local government agencies, tribes, individuals, and various interested groups that manage invasive weeds within a defined area."

 

All CWMA's share six basic characteristics: 

  • CWMAs operate within a defined geographic area, distinguished by a common geography, weed problem, community, climate, political boundary, or land use.
  • CWMAs involve a broad cross-section of landowners and natural resource managers within its defined boundaries.
  • CWMAs are governed by a Steering Committee.
  • CWMAs make a long-term commitment to cooperation, usually through a formal agreement among partners.
  • CWMAs have a comprehensive plan that addresses the management or prevention of invasive species within its boundaries.
  • CWMAs facilitate cooperation and coordination across jurisdictional boundaries.
