[Update] A report from the launch of the policy paper on Digital Dangers can be found at: https://dig.watch/resources/digital-dangers.

On July 19, 2018 the Global Initiative will launch a policy paper on cyber wildlife. The new project, Digital Dangers, aims to tackle the rising use of digital platforms to advertise, purchase and create new markets for illegal wildlife products. The policy brief is based on original research on the nature and dynamics of online marketplaces, and provides an analysis of the challenges and opportunities for disrupting them. Furthermore, it aims to strengthen networks for making a change, by supporting investigative journalists to report on online IWT, and by bringing together media and civil society to develop best practices on using the digital space for investigations and mobilisation. Digital Dangers is part of a broader project on online environmental crime markets in which multilateral organisations and civil society take part, encompassing UNODC, INTERPOL and the Global Initiative.

The event will take place at the Centre International de Conférences (CICG) in Geneva. For more information and to register, visit the event page.
