Combating Poaching and Illegal Wildlife Trafficking

The objective of the Project is to support the Government of Kenya to effectively address combating poaching and illegal wildlife trade (IWT) through a new IWT strategy, improvements of law enforcement capacity on the ground and sustainable landscape management in priority sites.

The project will address three main barriers that currently prevent the effective combat of poaching and illegal trafficking of wildlife in Kenya. These are : Gaps in legislation and regulation to fight poaching and Illegal Wildlife Trade; insufficient coordinating and law enforcement capacity to control poaching and Illegal Wildlife trade at national and sub-national level and insufficient coordinating and law enforcement capacity to control poaching at national and sub national levels and insufficient interest of local communities to wildlife conservation.
