AWCF 17th Annual Wildlife Consultative Forum
SCIF recently hosted the 17th meeting with ZimParks in Victoria Falls. We had over 100 attendees from 12 African nations, easily our biggest and best that I’ve organized. Hon. Minister Ndlovu officially opened the forum. The agenda tackled issues such as trans-frontier conservation areas, community engagement, Botswana’s wildlife reform, import policies, post CoP18 CITES strategy, trends in concession area abandonment in Tanzania, large carnivore research and the broad topic of repositioning trophy hunting. Most importantly as it relates to Europe, the European Commission’s Deputy Head of Multilateral Environmental Cooperation and CITES Scientific Officer presented remotely on case studies for trophy importation into the EU and answered some hard hitting questions regarding the EU’s positions at CITES
