This report focuses on the consequences of environmental crime. It argues that the situation has worsened to the extent that illegal trade in wildlife’s impacts are now acknowledged to go well beyond strictly environmental impacts – by seriously undermining economies and livelihoods, good governance, and the rule of law.

This publication intends to provide guidance on the benefits of, and ways to integrate environmental concerns into disaster risk reduction strategies (DRR) at the local and national levels. The questions this guidance note answers are: What are healthy ecosystems and ecosystem management? How can we integrate these environmental considerations into DRR?
