Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund Round 3

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).

Coastal Risk Information Service (C-RISE)

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

C-RISe has delivered, in a partnership between the UK, Mozambique, Madagascar, Mauritius and South Africa, access to information on sea level rise, storm surge, wind speed, wave heights and current velocities derived from satellite data and validated with local in-situ measurements. The goal was to enable local stakeholders to use this information to reduce the social and economic impact of coastal inundation and increasingly variable weather patterns. The three main objectives of the C-Rise project were to: • Deliver a Coastal Risk Information Service, providing satellite-derived information about coastal vulnerability to environmental threats such as sea level rise and extreme wind and wave events. • Apply and evaluate the C-RISe service through a set of Use Cases, applying the C-RISe products to end use applications meeting local priorities. • Build local capacity to use satellite data to provide scientific decision support for strategy development, governance and management of coastal areas to increase resilience to coastal hazards. These objectives were fully met, indeed exceeded, in some areas, as follows: • The C-RISe information service provided access to 5 satellite derived data sets: Historical satellite altimeter data providing time series of sea level, significant wave height and surface radar backscatter (2002-2018), Satellite derived climatology of wind velocity (2007-2018), Satellite derived climatology of significant wave height (1991-2018), Satellite derived climatology of surface currents (2002-2017), Web page delivering near real time marine conditions information • C-RISe partners have developed 27 Use Cases, of which 23 have been completed and 4 are still in progress. Only 4 Use Cases were originally foreseen • C-RISe has provided training to over 70 staff members of project partners in two training courses.
