Reducing Demand for Illegal Wildlife Products


Reducing Demand for Illegal Wildlife Products is the outcome of comprehensive and innovative research into this challenging field, commissioned by Defra in 2014. It was carried out by experts from TRAFFICWWFImperial College Business School and the Oxford Martin Programme on Illegal Wildlife Trade.

The publication of the Defra-funded report (Monday 10 September) comes exactly one month ahead of the fourth international Illegal Wildlife Trade conference to be staged in London. The Demand Reduction report can be read on Defra’s website.

The study forms part of the UK government’s commitment to “Eradicate the Market” made at the Hanoi Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade in November 2016.
