|Poaching and illicit trafficking of wildlife are among the five most lucrative illegal trades globally, estimated to be worth up to US$23 billion annually. UNDP has recognized the growing problem of illegal trade in wildlife and wildlife products and is responding accordingly, both in policy engagement and in UNDP-GEF programming.
Financed by the GEF and USAID and implemented by UNDP between 2018 and 2024 the “Reducing Maritime Trafficking of Wildlife between Africa and Asia” project under the GEF-financed, World Bank led Global Wildlife Program (GWP) aims to curb maritime wildlife trafficking, targeting key routes and transit points between Africa and Asia. The GEF launched the Global Wildlife Program (GWP) in June 2015, bringing together funding from the GEF and a wide range of partners, including the governments of the now 32 participating countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, GEF Agencies, bilateral and multilateral donors, foundations, the private sector and civil society. Work to strengthen anti-trafficking capacity through this UNDP-GEF Maritime Trafficking project preliminarily targets the East African ports of Mombasa (Kenya), Kampala (Uganda), Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar (Tanzania). Additionally, the project works at the global level to strengthen the performance of ports and the wider shipping industry in tackling wildlife trafficking in the long-term and supports knowledge exchange among GWP national projects and their stakeholders.
Project activities are aligned with three main components:
Sharing experiences and insights is an extremely valuable tool for advancing conservation, regionally and range-wide yet, paradoxically, it is widely recognized that conservation practitioners generally do not share their experiences in published form (Sunderland et al., 2009). Therefore, a huge volume of collective conservation experience is lost for future projects. Moreover, unexpected outcomes and project failures regularly occur in conservation projects given the complex socio-economic and uncertainty issues associated with species and ecosystem conservation. Yet these are very rarely reported despite their high practical value for others working in similar situations (Sunderland et al., 2009). Similarly, many projects do not regularly document lessons learned (both success and failure) or record them very briefly without sufficient details and analysis that would allow applying the lessons in practice for other projects. Properly documented lessons learned from conservation projects in different parts of the world can have tremendous value for the rapid improvement of overall effectiveness of the entire Global Wildlife Program.
Business projects have a well-developed system to systematically extract, analyze, store, and apply lessons learned to improve performance and products. The same kind of system can be applied to conservation projects. Project managers, team members and leadership can all participate in the lessons learned sessions, review the lessons learned reports and make decisions on how to use the knowledge gained. Sharing lessons learned among project team members prevents an organization from repeating the same mistakes and also allows them to take advantage of organizational best practices. Innovative approaches and good work practices can be shared with others. Lessons learned can be used to improve future projects and future stages of current projects (PMI 2004).
As part of Project Component 3, the UNDP-GEF-USAID Project “Reducing Maritime Trafficking of Wildlife between Africa and Asia” is seeking an International Consultant to assist GWP national projects supported by UNDP within the Sixth GEF Operational Phase (GEF6) to systematically extract and analyze project lessons related to interventions to prevent, detect and investigate/prosecute wildlife trafficking, and develop a publication with detailed descriptions of the lessons learned in a form that makes them easily understandable and applicable for other projects within the GWP framework and beyond.
