CWT Leadership Virtual Meeting with ASEANAPOL
June 9, 2021

USAID Wildlife Asia and the Association of Southeast Asian National Police (ASEANAPOL) Secretariat co-hosted on June 8, 2021 the virtual Counter Wildlife Trafficking Executive Leadership Consultation meeting with high-level police law enforcement leaders across the region. At the first of its kind police executive-level meeting solely focused on wildlife crimes, ASEAN’s top law enforcement leaders highlighted the importance of tackling wildlife crime as a serious transnational crime that necessitates a multi-agency and multinational approach. This makes counter wildlife trafficking a key focus and elevates the issue of wildlife crime among the region’s police chiefs, along with other transnational crimes such as illicit drug trafficking, trafficking in persons, and cybercrimes.
