The illegal wildlife trade (IWT) reaches far beyond the international conservation agenda, attracting concern because of its links to organised crime and national security. There is no one solution to combatting wildlife crime, but increasingly practitioners and policy makers are recognising the need to engage rural communities that neighbour or live with wildlife as key partners. Our database contains case study summaries of community-level interventions that aim to tackle the illegal wildlife trade, as well as overviews of the national policy context for IWT and community engagement.
