Welcome to this week's news update

Dear TRAFFIC supporter,

This week India held its first national workshop on capacity building for effective wildlife law enforcement. Around 100 enforcement agency representatives from across the country met in Tamil Nadu to undergo training to enhance their knowledge and skills for curbing poaching and illegal wildlife trade. The forum will set the foundations for the development of a national level strategy and protocols for combating wildlife crime.

In Viet Nam, the next step of the consumer behaviour change Chi Campaign took place when posters depicting successful businessmen refusing to accept rhino horn gifts were put on display at Noi Bai International Airport, a venue chosen because of its role as a significant throughway for illegally-traded wildlife parts.
