Summary

This project will reduce the international trafficking of elephant ivory and pangolins in West/Central Africa. It will do this by building more effective criminal justice responses to organised wildlife trafficking in Nigeria by working with government and civil-society organisations. The project will generate information to inform intelligence-led law enforcement investigations into trafficking and corruption, build capacity for wildlife crime financial investigations, and enhance regional cooperation, including with Gabon and Cameroon.
