 - Reducing Consumer Demand for Wildlife in Asia

To combat wildlife trafficking, USAID Wildlife Asia, USAID Saving Species and GlobeScan conducted multiple wildlife consumer demand studies in China, Thailand and Vietnam. The results uncovered the beliefs, attitudes and values of consumers which drive them to buy and use wildlife parts and products. In this webinar, we will cover demand for parts and products derived from rhinos, elephants, pangolins and tigers, across these three major consumption countries. We will discuss evidence-based recommendations to help reduce the demand for these products among different consumer segments. We cordially invite you to participate in this important discussion with the presenters and panelists.

The webinar, hosted by GlobeScan, will take place on March 27 at 8pm Hong Kong, Beijing / 7pm Bangkok, Hanoi / 1pm London / 8am Washington DC. The agenda and panelists are:
