Statement of Work

Support Consultant

ASEAN CWT Law Enforcement Agency Mapping Exercise

Program - USAID Wildlife Asia

USAID Wildlife Asia seeks to significantly reduce wildlife crime in Southeast Asia and China by employing a comprehensive regional cooperation approach. Specifically, Wildlife Asia will (i) Reduce consumer demand for wildlife and wildlife products in target areas; (ii) Strengthen regional law enforcement capacity and coordination; (iii) Increase commitment to addressing counter wildlife trafficking (CWT); and, (iv) Support the USAID Regional Development Mission for Asia’s (RDMA’s) coordination of regional CWT stakeholders and efforts to strengthen the US Government (USG) interagency CWT initiatives.

 

USAID Wildlife Asia is based in Bangkok, Thailand and the geographic scope includes all ASEAN countries, with a focus on the Lower Mekong (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia) and China. The species of primary interest are elephants (ivory), pangolins, rhinos (rhino horn), and Asian big cats. The project will soon begin its fifth and final year of implementation.

 

Background

As part of its work under the law enforcement component of the program, USAID Wildlife Asia has been working with a number of partners and counterpart agencies to develop, deliver, promote and institutionalize the Counter Transnational Organized Crime training (CTOC) course. ASEANAPOL has recently emerged as a key ally in this regard including helping to launch the CTOC training package in October 2020. They also recently expressed interest in co-hosting a virtual CWT Executive Leadership Consultation Meeting which is an event that aims to demonstrate the utility of a multi-agency and multinational approach to countering wildlife trafficking in order to garner support for these critical networks at a higher operational level, and for this to filter up into needed legislative and policy changes which prioritize counter wildlife trafficking efforts. To support this event, ASEANAPOL has requested the preparation of a report which identifies and outlines the roles and responsibilities of current agencies involved in Counter Wildlife Trafficking (CWT) law enforcement efforts across ASEAN including the status of national WENs.
