Criteria for assigning threat levels

High threat: Direct impact (1 or more) in priority 1-2 and/or indirect impacts (2 or more) in priorities 1-3.

Medium threat: Direct impact (1 or more) in priorities 3-4 and/or an indirect impact in priorities 1- 3 and/or indirect impacts in priority 4 (2 or more).

Low threat: Direct impact (1 or more) in priority 5 and/or an indirect impact in priority 4 and/or indirect impacts (1 or more) in priority 5.

No threat: No impacts reported.

Threat unknown: No information or information not available.

*: Magnitude was calculated assigning a value of 5 points to the first threat selected, and then assigning values of 5 to 1 points in descending order. Taking into account that a total of 13 countries and territories responded, the maximum point value a threat can have is 65 (13 x 5) and the lowest is 0 (no points). The sum of the points for each threat is multiplied by 100 and divided by 65; the value was reduced to decimals for the previous graphic. For example, illegal trade had a total of 17 points, 17 x 100 / 65 = 26.15 (0.26).
