Project Summary:
This project addresses a neglected component of the IWT, namely the lack of capacity in source countries to investigate illicit financial flows (IFF) underpinning the trade. This project aims to build capacity in Kenya and Tanzania to detect and prosecute wildlife-linked money-laundering – which stalls development and entrenches poverty. It does so by piloting a new approach: a strategic threat- and needs-assessment around wildlife-linked IFFs followed by tailored multi-agency and cross-border training, bridging law-enforcement, banking, wildlife, justice and customs authorities.
