By Stop Illegal Fishing:10th Oct, 2018:

11 – 12 October 2018

Venue: London, UK

The UK government is hosting an international conference on illegal wildlife trade (IWT) in London on 11 to 12 October 2018. The 2018 London conference is an opportunity to build on previous efforts, address the underlying issues that facilitate it, and make steps to tackle this criminal trade.

The London conference will strengthen international partnerships across borders and beyond government and focus on 3 key themes:

Tackling IWT as a serious organised crime

Building coalitions

Closing markets

Much has been achieved since the London 2014 conference, but there is more to do. Urgent, united action by the international community is vital to tackle illegal trade and end wildlife crime.
