SNAPP TEAM:Sustainable Wild Meat Management

Teams Like This
How can Central African wild meat policies be adapted and strengthened to support sustainable use and ensure the persistence of Central Africa’s wildlife?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals
  • Synthesis of current wild meat research. The working group will produce several policy briefs, synthesizing available data and research on wild meat in each of the focal countries (Gabon, Cameroon, DRC). These briefs will be provided in a timely manner to support policy discussions, and the content guided through conversations with government policy makers and stakeholders, ensuring that we are answering relevant questions posed by those directly involved with and affected by policy and legislative reforms.
  • Support to national policy reform processes. We will support national policy makers to convene national workshops to discuss reforms to national wild meat policies. For each of the different countries, where policy discussions are at different stages, the aims of these workshops will vary, and may signal the beginning of policy discussions or be used to discuss draft policy documents and engage national stakeholders for their review.

SNAPP TEAM:The Social Implications of 30×30
Support SNAPP
Teams Like This
What are the implications for resident people of plans to greatly increase global protected and conserved area coverage, and how might these be addressed to maximize positive outcomes for nature and society?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals
  1. New analysis of the potential social impacts of 30×30 at global level, under various scenarios for implementation. This will include analysis of affected populations disaggregated as far as possible by wealth, ethnicity, voice in decision making and other important social variables.
  2. A more detailed analysis of one case study country (likely to be in Central Africa).
  3. Feasible proposals for how 30×30 could be implemented at the country level in a way that maximises social benefits while minimising social harms, co-developed with implementation partners.
  4. Improved dialogue and a strong foundation for future inter-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research collaboration between people with different perspectives on area-based conservation.

SNAPP TEAM:WildHealthNet Consortium

Teams Like This
Can we effectively strengthen wildlife health surveillance globally through a collaborative and evidence-based consortium of local, national, and international organizations?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals

1a. Prioritize surveillance to focus on high-risk interfaces by synthesizing data on health impacts on wildlife, existing wildlife health surveillance systems, missing cases of wildlife health events and detection bias, and socio-ecological interfaces and high spillover risk practices;

1b. Address sustainability through analyses of data and creation of tools to estimate cost effectiveness and benefits of surveillance, drawing from existing wildlife or livestock surveillance systems;

2a. Communicate a co-developed theory of change that connects multilateral agreements (e.g., SDGs) and international frameworks to the practical implementation of wildlife surveillance systems;

2b. Formalize the consortium through the drafting of a collaboration agreement with endorsements from respective member institutions describing how we work together in the long term and identify capabilities, synergies, and gaps among stakeholders in the implementation of sustainable wildlife health surveillance globally.
