Conservation and counter-wildlife trafficking initiatives are at a crucial crossroads. While the preservation of our biodiversity and natural heritage depends on the success of these endeavors, there has been reluctance to recognize anti-corruption measures as prerequisites in these efforts. Effective counter-corruption action necessitates collective efforts from governments, civil society, law enforcement, and international organizations.

The one-hour webinar seeks to shed light on the multifaceted challenges of this form of corruption and highlights field experiences, success stories, tools, and valuable lessons in addressing it. Examples encompass various levels, from the national to the institutional and community, including protected areas and rangers.

The event will also showcase the new GWP e-Library, a resource hub for anti-corruption materials dedicated to wildlife conservation.
