Nature in Africa is stunning. Cultural diversity is unparalleled. However in many regions across the continent, African people and ecosystems have suffered from unjust and persistent plunder, driven in many instances by Asian, European and North American demand. EIA collaborates closely with local partners and communities to stop environmental crime such as illegal logging and wildlife trafficking, and leverages global markets and transnational treaties for transformational change. While exposing the crucial role of international trade through investigations and data analysis, we are working with our partners to implement solutions that protect biodiversity and improve the rights and livelihoods of citizens.
