|Description:||The purpose of the Ministerial Dialogue is to provide a high level forum, building on previous and on going initiatives, to exchange views and experiences among Ministers on the challenges of - and progress towards addressing - the illegal trade in wildlife. In addition, the session will demonstrate the role of UNEA in convening such a dialogue on an emerging threat to the global environment. It will be the largest Ministerial gathering to consider illegal wildlife trade convened in the current poaching crisis.|
The scope of the dialogue will move beyond the current attention provided to the poaching crisis facing African elephants and rhinos, addressing a wider range of threats from illegal harvesting and trafficking including timber, fish, tigers, pangolins, great apes, and a broad range of birds, reptiles, and other plants.
