Pro-poor responses to wildlife crime in Uganda: Inception Workshop Report
Building Capacity for Pro-Poor Responses to Wildlife Crime in Uganda (2014-2017) aims to increase national capacity to deliver pro-poor responses to wildlife crime. By increasing understanding about the links between wildlife crime and poverty it will also provide lessons with international applicability. This Inception Workshop Report summarises the project’s Theory of Change and the team’s Work Plan for the next three years.
International wildlife crime has moved to the top of the conservation and development agenda following the recent surge in illegal poaching and trafficking of wildlife. But calls for law enforcement to combat the involvement of criminal syndicates and militia risk alienating rural communities. How can responses be more pro-poor? This project aims to build capacity for pro-poor responses in Uganda through learning more about the interactions between wildlife crime and poverty.
