In July 2019, USAID/Mozambique released a comprehensive study of the wildlife criminal justice process in Mozambique and identified key areas for improvement. Successful enforcement of wildlife trafficking laws requires apprehending perpetrators and shepherding them through the criminal justice system. This study, Conservation & Enforcement in Gorongosa & Niassa: A Study of the Criminal Justice Process for Wildlife Crime from Apprehension to Incarceration, was undertaken to answer a key learning question pertaining to wildlife trafficking in Mozambique: Under what conditions does increased detection of environmental crimes lead to prosecution and punishment? To answer this question, the Mozambique Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanisms and Services team conducted interviews to map Mozambique’s criminal justice system. The team compared the ideal legal pathway that wildlife criminals should follow with the steps taken in reality and used discrepancies to highlight areas for strengthening the system.
