Side event at the 19th meeting of the CITES Conference of the Parties (CoP)

The online illegal wildlife trade is a global problem that presents serious challenges to those seeking to enforce wildlife laws, reduce demand for illegal wildlife or regulate safe online spaces.

To assist member states, NGOs and the private sector, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) and the Alliance to Counter Crime Online (ACCO) have developed a suite of tools that aim to make responses more efficient, effective and collaborative, which we will present. Members states will discuss their own challenges regulating online trade and the panel will put forward concrete proposals for improving responses.

Reports containing practical tools and guidance covering the development of typologies, the ethics of monitoring and responding to online trade, and assessing the legality of online advertisement will also be available at the event.

Participants are invited to stay for refreshments after the event.
