File Conservation and Law Enforcement in Gorongosa and Niassa: A Study of the Criminal Justice Process for Wildlife Crime, from Apprehension to Incarceration by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:19 PM
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.

File Health Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:37 PM
Intact, biologically diverse ecosystems play important roles in promoting health and fighting disease by providing goods and services including wild foods, natural medicines, and clean air and water. Human health also plays an important role in biodiversity outcomes, as poor health and low access to health services are drivers of biodiversity loss.
File Water and Sanitation Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:35 PM
Natural ecosystems capture, store and purify water, allowing biodiversity programming to complement and protect water and sanitation investments. Similarly, by improving waste water treatment and increasing water use efficiency, water and sanitation programming reduces the pollution of aquatic ecosystems and lessens the amount of water taken from rivers or lakes.
File Democracy, Human Rights and Governance Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:34 PM
Democracy, human rights and governance (DRG) challenges—such as weak institutions, insecure access to natural resources and lack of participation in decision-making—are key drivers of biodiversity loss, and DRG programming can yield substantial benefits for biodiversity. Similarly, biodiversity programming often yields DRG co-benefits by promoting co-management of resources, investments in judicial systems and support to land tenure systems.

Ecosystems provide goods and services critical to human development and well-being such as food, fiber, clean water, fertile soil and pollination. Opportunities for integrating biodiversity with other development sectors exist throughout the USAID portfolio, and can be realized by the coordination of existing programming, co-location of new activities or planned co-funding.
File Food Security Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:16 PM
Ecosystems provide goods and services that support food production—including provision of wild foods and water, pest control and pollination—and biodiversity programming can have significant positive impacts on food security. Similarly, agriculture programming can sustainably increase productivity and incomes while minimizing impacts on the environment, yielding benefits for both food security and biodiversity.
