August 20, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm

CoP18 provides an opportunity for Parties and collaborating partner institutions from around the world the change, every two years, to meet together and exchange lessons, successes and failures on efforts to save global biodiversity. The USAID-funded West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change Program (WA BiCC), in collaboration with a diverse set of partners, is organizing four side events to engage key stakeholders, including CITES Parties and the Secretariat, on efforts in West Africa on Combating Wildlife Trafficking (CWT). The side events will focus on policy development, capacity building, existing and potential partnerships and wildlife law enforcement tools and technologies.

This side event will:

  1. Share information on a menu of tools and technologies that are available, tried and tested for dissemination to wildlife law enforcement agencies in South East Asia and Africa;
  2. Provide demonstrations on the design and or functioning of selected tools of particular interest to West Africa;
  3. Facilitate discussions between West African Parties and the institutions with the capacity to develop, adapt, transfer or fund access to technologies of interest to the West African Parties.
