Summary

This project addresses an insufficiently considered aspect of the fight against IWT. This concerns the lack of capacity to use financial-intelligence tools – techniques of proven value in investigating high-level organised criminals, including those driving IWT. This project builds capacity to detect and prosecute wildlife-linked money-laundering – which stalls development and entrenches poverty. It does so by expanding multi-agency training provided in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda under IWT Challenge Fund Round 2, and extending research and training to Malawi, Zambia and Mozambique.
