Procedure for Air Monitoring using Active Air Samplers (HVS)
United Nations Environment Programme

“Sampling methods for air and QA/QC procedures should, as far as possible, be adopted from existing air monitoring programmes1 for POPs, but they will need to be adapted to and validated for the specific conditions, concentration levels and temperature at the sampling sites.” This document therefore comprises, as a contribution to the capacity building efforts under the Global Monitoring Plan under the Stockholm Convention by the Stockholm Convention Regional Centre in the Czech Republic, a description of the operation procedure and methodology for sampling of ambient air by active sampler as a first attempt to bring key steps into one document. As there are several monitoring programmes, each of them using different type of active sampler, we are hereby describing a case study example of the device Leckel MVS-6 (middle volume sampler) used in the sampling sites in Africa.

Wild Life, Wild Livelihoods: Involving communities on Sustainable Wildlife Management and Combating illegal Wildlife Trade
United Nations Environment Programme

The report summarizes insights from decades of research on community wildlife management, and draws lessons from new analyses focused specifically on engaging Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) in combating the illegal trade in wildlife (ITW). Based on a recognition of the importance of community “voice” in enabling sustainable and effective outcomes, it goes on to survey the opportunities and constraints for IPLCs in terms of their participation in key international policy forums that influence wildlife management.
