File Advancing Reforms to Promote Sustainable Management of Ghana's Small Pelagic Fisheries by BRIDGE — last modified Mar 30, 2020 02:59 PM
Ghana is facing a crisis of sustainability in its small pelagic fisheries that threatens the food security and livelihoods of a large segment of the population. While the technical solutions to the problems in these fisheries have been known for some time, the necessary actions have not been implemented. To understand this persistent gap between the presence of solutions on paper and the absence of action in practice, USAID implemented this applied political economy analysis (PEA). The goal of the PEA is to provide a deeper understanding of the political, economic, and social factors driving the behavior of key actors in the fisheries sector to inform future USAID programming decisions.

Get Up to Speed On These Innovative Biodiversity Conservation Approaches and Solutions by Portal Web Editor — last modified Mar 22, 2020 04:12 PM
One of ABCG's key goal is to encourage the exchange of information and knowledge among stakeholders while providing an opportunity for technical experts to connect and engage. In 2019, we co-hosted 11 brown bag presentations and events on diverse and critical topics on biodiversity conservation. The topics ranged from family planning and conservation, illegal wildlife trade, the conservation of rhinos in various parts of Africa, innovative conservation initiatives such as Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool (SMART) and First Line of Defence against Illegal Wildlife Trade (FLoD) and innovative approaches for engaging local communities in conservation.

ABCG Event: Webinar hosted by the Global Wildlife Program Combating Maritime Trafficking of Wildlife Feb 26, 2020 from 08:00 AM to 09:30 AM The World Bank, Room MC 7-500 NW Washington, DC 20433, by Portal Web Editor
Wildlife Trafficking, the illegal cross-border trade in wildlife, is one of the largest transnational organized criminal activities alongside drug trafficking, arms and human trafficking. Most ivory (72% in 2014) is trafficked by sea due to the large volumes of ivory trafficked and minimal risk of interception and arrest. This webinar will showcase global and regional implications and trends of wildlife crime, emphasizing the considerable role maritime transport networks and sea ports play in wildlife trafficking.

File Reducing corruption’s impact on natural resources: How does a gender lens help? by Allison Taylor — last modified Feb 11, 2020 10:37 AM
Evidence shows that women and other groups that face power inequity have an essential role to play in achieving natural resource management and conservation results. Many corrupt actions are only feasible for those with money and power, and corruption often perpetuates and deepens power networks. When programs and reforms are developed to prevent and address the corruption behind negative environmental and social outcomes, how can a gender lens help?
File Why is money laundering a critical issue in natural resource corruption? by Allison Taylor — last modified Feb 11, 2020 10:45 AM
The profits from illicit natural resource trade in fish, timber and wildlife are estimated to be between $62.5 billion and $316.4 billion annually. These funds are usually transferred through banks, corporations and other accounts in the international financial system. “Following the money,” confiscating it and arresting the money launderers, however, has received less attention than arresting the individuals most closely associated with illegal shipments, poached animals or undocumented catch. Yet this next step helps reveal the networks that finance, facilitate and grow rich from environmental crimes, and it is key to preventing these crimes and related corruption because the illicit gains have minimal value if they can’t be used in the international financial system. By following the money flows, it is possible to target the perpetrators and their facilitating networks and ensure that crime does not pay.
File Gender-based violence and environment linkages: The violence of inequality by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Jan 30, 2020 11:51 AM
Rooted in discriminatory gender norms and laws and shrouded in impunity, gender-based violence (GBV) occurs in all societies as a means of control, subjugation and exploitation that further reinforces gender inequality. This publication establishes that these patterns of gender-based abuse are observed across environmental contexts, affecting the security and well-being of nations, communities and individuals, and jeopardising meeting sustainable development goals (SDGs). While linkages between GBV and environmental issues are complex and multi-layered, these threats to human rights and healthy ecosystems are not insurmountable. This analysis reveals the complex and interlinking nature of GBV across three main contexts: access to and control of natural resources; environmental pressure and threats; and environmental action to defend and conserve ecosystems and resources. This publication aims to raise awareness and engage actors working in environmental and sustainable development, gender equality, and GBV policymaking and programming spheres to inform rights-based, gender-responsive approaches to environmental policy, programmes and projects.
File Integrating Biodiversity and Sustainable Landscapes in USAID Programming by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Feb 07, 2020 01:20 PM
Integration of biodiversity and sustainable landscapes (SL) objectives and considerations has the potential to increase the sustainability of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) programming, amplify results, and save costs. Integrating biodiversity and SL offers an opportunity to jointly address threats and drivers of biodiversity, forest loss, and land degradation. Integration can also advance sustainable, resilient, and inclusive programming. At other times, separate activities may make more sense in contexts where programmatic goals and requirements are not a natural fit. This document explores both the benefits and potential challenges of integration to help USAID staff make informed choices about whether and how to integrate these two distinct funding streams.
