The environmental problem, recognized by the different social instances, is determined among other processes by the specific forms of socioeconomic development, whose practice involves from the ways in which man conceives himself within nature to the specific instruments with which appropriates her; that is, the different knowledge and practices - not only economic - but social and cultural of humanity. The need to address the environmental problem in our communities, requires a perspective that involves the criticism of these different knowledge and developments of human knowledge and the creation of alternatives or the search for a unit of their traditional knowledge on native and exotic species Invasive and the contributions that the International GEF / UNDP project “Improving the Prevention, Control and Management of IAS in vulnerable ecosystems in Cuba” generated from its work objectives.
