UN World Wildlife Day 2016
Group of Friends, CITES, UNDP, UNEP, UNODC and WBG
Thursday, March 3, 2016 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (EST)
Join the Group of Friends on Poaching and Illicit Wildlife Trafficking, CITES, UNDP, UNEP, UNODC and World Bank Group (WBG) in celebrating UN World Wildlife Day. Support our efforts to fight the poaching and illicit trafficking of wildlife!
Considerable efforts are underway at national, regional and international levels to fight wildlife crime and forest crime yet it remains a growing concern across all regions. It is undermining national and regional security in a number of countries, with direct implications for livelihoods and sustainable development.
The Group of Friends, CITES, UNDP, UNEP, UNODC and WBG have the pleasure of inviting you to participate by following the livestream of the event at the ECOSOC Chamber at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, on 3 March 2016, in honor of UN World Wildlife Day.
The event is designed to create a high-level platform to reinforce political commitments to respond to the challenges of wildlife and forest crime as called for by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN General Assembly Resolution on tackling illicit trafficking in wildlife.
This high-level event will showcase the efforts made by States, the UN system and many partners to address illicit wildlife trafficking at global, country, and community levels.
