USAID Wildlife Asia and Monitor Conservation Research Society are excited to invite you to join us for the Virtual Launch of USAID’s 2020 Counter Wildlife Trafficking Digest on Friday, May 21, 2021, 9:30-10:30 a.m. (Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta GMT+07:00).
The Digest reports aim to provide an evidence base to support decision-making about priority interventions in policy, law enforcement and consumer-demand reduction, and how to strengthen collaborative approaches to counter wildlife trafficking. USAID Wildlife Asia has released three previous Digest reports; one for 2017 (Digest 2017), one for 2018 (Digest 2018), and one for 2019 (Digest 2019 ). This is the fourth report in the series covering 2020 which was developed in partnership with Monitor Conservation Research Society.
We will be presenting the main findings of the report, and highlighting the lessons learned, recommendations and next steps. We will also be hearing from Giovanni Broussard from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime on the “Impacts of Covid on wildlife trafficking”. A more detailed agenda is attached for your reference.
