Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund Round 4

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

Illegal wildlife trade (IWT) is the fifth most lucrative transnational crime, worth up to £17bn a year globally. As well as threatening species with extinction, IWT destroys vital ecosystems. IWT also fosters corruption, feeds insecurity, and undermines good governance and the rule of law. The UK government is committed to tackling illegal trade of wildlife products. Defra manages the Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund, which is a competitive grants scheme with the objective of tackling illegal wildlife trade and, in doing so, contributing to sustainable development in developing countries. Projects funded under the Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund address one, or more, of the following themes: • Developing sustainable livelihoods to benefit people directly affected by IWT • Strengthening law enforcement • Ensuring effective legal frameworks • Reducing demand for IWT products Over £23 million has been committed to 75 projects since the Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund was established in 2013; five projects were awarded in 2014 (via applications to the Darwin Initiative), fourteen in 2015, fifteen in 2016, thirteen in 2017, fourteen in 2018 and in the latest round in 2019. This round of funding includes the following projects (details of which can be found at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/811381/iwt-project-list-2019.pdf): IWT048, IWT049, IWT050, IWT051, IWT052, IWT053, IWT054, IWT055, IWT056, IWT057, IWT058, IWT059, IWT0760, IWT061.

The Darwin Initiative is a UK government grants scheme that helps to protect biodiversity and the natural environment through locally based projects worldwide. The initiative funds projects that help countries rich in biodiversity but poor in financial resources to meet their objectives under one or more of the biodiversity conventions. The objective is to to address threats to biodiversity such as: - habitat loss or degradation - climate change - invasive species - over-exploitation - pollution and eutrophication

SIBELIUs: Improved resilience for Mongolian herding communities

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

Mongolia is a large country with ~30% of its population dependant on livestock herding who are exposed to extreme weather events (dzuds), which are increasingly exacerbated by climate change and are highly damaging to Mongolia’s economy and devastating for the poorest herders. A typical dzud can impact millions of herders many of who will lose all their livestock leaving them in extreme poverty, with associated impacts for the wider economy. SIBELIUs will provide greater dzud-resilience for herders by providing NAMEM1 with improved capacity (new sources of satellite data, plus a geo-spatial database) for distributing new and upgraded environmental products to key stakeholders supporting herding communities. A key aspect of the project is to channel the benefits of improved products through three existing networks: (1) the Mongolian IBLI2 scheme (2) Otor Grazing Reserves which provide emergency grazing for use in dzuds (3) NAMEM’s existing network of regional centres. The project’s impact will be measured directly by the number of herders covered by the IBLI scheme (a readily available statistic) and the dzud-resilience of herders in three test sites, where requirements gathering will also be conducted. Increasing dzud-resilience will directly impact SDG1.5 and SDG13.1. NAMEM are committed to supplying the SIBELIUs service beyond the project’s UKSA funding, therefore providing a long-term sustainable solution. This activity benefits Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan.
