United Nations Environment Programme, International Union for Conservation of Nature, Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, Wildlife Trade Monitoring Network
This rapid response assessment report brings together critical up-to-date information from the CITES-recognized systems that monitor the status of elephants, the illegal killing of elephants, and the legal and illegal trade in ivory. Collectively, these systems deliver consistent, evidence-based information to improve our understanding of the dynamics of the illegal ivory supply chain.
