Megan Baroni and Peter Knight are among the presenters participating in a program on "Preventing Wildlife Crimes in Namibia: An International Approach to Legislative Reform." Sponsored by the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of State and Local Government Law's International Law Committee, the ABA Section of International Law's Anti-Corruption Committee, and the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources' International Environmental and Resources Law Committee and Endangered Species Committee, the webcast will cover the current state of wildlife poaching in Namibia, how to improve coordination and enforcement through legislative reform, and next steps to deal with organized criminal syndicates who have infiltrated and control the global wildlife products trade. This project was undertaken in 2016 – 17, with contribution from the State and Local Government Law Section, bringing together an international research team from the US, the UK and Namibia. Peter and Megan oversaw the team in the United States researching legislative options for bolstering enforcement efforts.
