INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE

Today, TNRF is participating in the International Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade (IWT) in London. UK government is hosting an international conference on illegal wildlife trade (IWT) in London on 11 to 12 October 2018.

The illegal wildlife trade is an urgent global issue, which not only threatens some of the world’s most iconic species with extinction, but also damages sustainable economic growth and the livelihoods of vulnerable people in rural communities. It’s worth up to £17 billion per year and is the fourth most lucrative transnational crime after drugs, weapons and human trafficking. The criminals who run this trade do more than damage wildlife – they use networks of corrupt officials and agencies to undermine sustainable development and the rule of law, damaging the livelihood and growth of local communities.

Thus the 2018 conference aims at strengthening international partnership across borders and beyond government and focus on three themes;

Tackling IWT as a serious organized crime

  • Increase collaboration across continents to tackle IWT-associated illicit financial flows and corruption
  • Strengthen networks of IWT law enforcement experts, helping frontline countries to coordinate across the trade routes
  • Improve understanding of the linkages to wider security challenges
