Funded by USAID.   

Mexico

UNODC is working with national authorities to improve the detection, investigation and prosecution of wildlife and forest crime in Mexico by raising awareness, strengthening the criminal justice system and increasing inter-agency coordination. Funded by US INL.

Peru

UNODC delivered a project to contribute to the protection of Peru's forests by strengthening the national criminal justice system to improve the investigation and prosecution of forest crimes. Although the project (funded by the Government of Germany) has concluded, a sustainable national inter-agency Forest Platform is still running. National support will continue through the CTCCA project.
