The Environment Team works with legal systems and law enforcement agencies of Member States in Southeast Asia, South Asia and the Pacific to: strengthen policy, legislative and regulatory frameworks; enhance knowledge and skills to investigate and prosecute related criminal activities; increase awareness regarding the nature and scale of wildlife and forest crimes; and enhance cooperation on a bilateral and regional level.
The Safety across Asia For the global Environment project improves the understanding of the linkages between wildlife crime and the emergence of zoonotic diseases. Through a risk assessment framework, the project supports the identification of facilities with a high risk of disease transmission from wild animals to humans and proposes mitigation strategies.
UNODC has a large team across the Asia Pacific region. For further information on our work, you may contact our Asia Pacific Coordinator, Ms. Jenna Dawson-Faber at unodc-wlfc[@]un.org
