Dear Colleagues,

Following the recent annual conference of the Heads of INTERPOL National Central Bureaus (NCBs), the Environmental Security Programme (ENS) is pleased to announce the outcomes which call for enhanced collaboration with the INTERPOL Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Committee to address transnational environmental security threats. The Heads of NCBs adopted outcomes on 3 main areas :

· NCBs are invited to support the ECEC’s specialized working groups along with providing new solutions and recommendations.

· Further support for the INTERPOL General Secretariat to develop regional capabilities in investigative and capacity needs.

· NCBs are encouraged to work with the donor community and member countries to increase their investments in ENS.

With these elements in place, the adoption of the outcomes will bring ENS to the forefront of the global law enforcement agenda. ENS pledges our continued drive and support for impactful collaborative initiatives in emerging crimes and areas of interest including :

· Water security

· Supply chain security

· Climate change mitigation

· Illegal mining and mineral extraction

Please find attached the conclusion document (in draft form) adopted by the NCBs in English, French, Spanish and Arabic for further information.

We thank you for all your ongoing efforts and deep commitment towards safeguarding the environment, biodiversity and natural resources and look forward to working with you to fulfill our commitment towards environmental security.

Best Regards,

Environmental Security
