The Environment Team, through the Global Programme on Crimes that Affect the Environment, works closely with its implementing partner, TRACE Wildlife Forensics Network (TRACE), to support national authorities to improve their forensic capacity and to increase accessibility to wildlife forensic services. Support is provided through the development of guidance material, delivery of training and mentorship, provision of equipment and consumables, fostering networking and cooperation, and developing Quality Management Systems. For countries that do not have a lab or access to wildlife forensic services, UNODC and TRACE have established a Portable Enforcement Laboratory for Testing Seizures. UNODC also strives to bring countries and practitioners together, to open lines of communication and develop networks. For example, UNODC and TRACE set up the African Wildlife Forensics Network in 2015; it has gone from strength to strength, currently with members from 15 African countries.
