Dear Colleagues,

INTERPOL is pleased to announce that between 24 and 28 November 2014 it will host the Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Committee, together with the Wildlife Crime, Fisheries Crime and Pollution Crime Working Groups. These meetings will bring together inter-governmental organizations, law enforcement and government officials nominated by the National Central Bureaus from across INTERPOL’s 190 member countries. The Green Customs Initiative, comprised of the secretariats of the major multilateral environmental agreements and inter-governmental organizations, will also take this opportunity to hold their annual meeting, marking the partnership’s 10th anniversary.

Environmental crime continues to be an emerging issue gaining increasing attention worldwide, with serious criminal, conservation, social and economic impacts. The November meetings in Lyon will be dedicated to developing practical law enforcement responses to the issues as well as coordinating projects (capacity building, intelligence gathering) across the environmental crime spectrum.

For more information on the Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Committee and the Working Groups, please visit INTERPOL’s website.

Best regards,

Environmental Crime Programme
