Title :Side Event IV - Illegal Trade in Wildlife
Location:Nairobi Conference Room 13
Start Date:Tuesday 24 June 2014 13:15
End Date:Tuesday 24 June 2014 14:45
Description:Organized by the Government of Kenya and the Population Media Centre, this Side Event will focus on the issue of illegal trade in wildlife, poaching, markets and trade, trafficking and wildlife security. It will fill the gaps in understanding the dynamics and causes of trade in wildlife, and present snapshots of what is happening in some countries like Kenya. This event is driven by the fact that illegal trade in flora and fauna has been estimated to be worth 7-23 billion dollars annually (OECD, 2012; UNODC, 2011; UNEP-INTERPOL, 2012). The side event will also build on the proposed decision on illegal trade in wildlife that has been tabled by the European Union for discussion during UNEA´s High Level Segment.
