People Not Poaching learning platform
Local communities have a key role to play in tackling the illegal wildlife trade (IWT) but they lack a voice in discussions and are rarely consulted when IWT policies are being developed. Consequently, policies and programmes may not reflect local communities’ priorities and views, and anti-poaching initiatives will be less effective because of it.
The People Not Poaching: the Communities and IWT Learning Platform, created in partnership with IUCN Sustainable Use & Livelihoods Specialist Group and TRAFFIC - the wildlife trade monitoring network, will enable organisations and communities to share IWT successes and lessons.
The unique interactive website is being launched today at the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London to foster learning and share experiences on community engagement in combating poaching and the illegal wildlife trade.
