Programme 2020

International Conference Environmental Transnational Crime

20.02.2020, 10:00 - 16:00 h

Simultaneous translation German - English


The world has lost 50% biodiversity in the last 40 years and the major factor is illegal extraction (poaching, illegal logging and fishing) and trafficking.
Many endangered species face imminent extinction, marine environments and fish stocks are collapsing and natural habitats are being lost forever due to illegal logging. In addition to accelerating the loss to biodiversity, wildlife crime de-stabilises societies, affects local communities (eg: killing of rangers, and poachers, which can leave families destitute), increases global health risks (spreading of disease through consumption and transport), and fuels corruption as well as other types of auxiliary crimes such money laundering and fraud, often by using ressources of Organized Crime.
