ECO-SOLVE is a programme that has been specifically designed to monitor the illicit online environmental trade, extract useful and digestible data that can inform law enforcement and private sector actions, while driving greater transparency and accountability in tackling illicit online markets. It will also target those individuals and networks that cause most harm – actors who through corrupt activities readily facilitate and operate global illicit markets, such as illegal logging, which perpetuate the global biodiversity crisis. The programme will include local and indigenous communities in regional and multilateral forums to drive productive, trusted and confident conversations between community members, enforcement officers and policymakers.
