Combating Wildlife Trafficking Program (Dominican Republic)

Deadline: 3-Jun-22

The United States Agency for International Development, Dominican Republic Mission (USAID/Dominican Republic), is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified entities to implement the “Combating Wildlife Trafficking” program.

The project will support existing partners and governmental agencies working on the issue of illegal wildlife trade in the Caribbean region and critically evaluate existing and emerging threats to target species and wider biodiversity concerns.

The project will further focus on the drivers of illegal trade and linkages to broader economic activity in the region, including tourism and partnerships with the private sector (i.e. airlines, cruise ships, airports, hotels, maritime logistics companies, etc.), to address the demand of wildlife products.

The CWTA objectives will be achieved through the implementation of all three of the three strategic approaches,

Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC),
Strengthening international & interagency coordination & cooperation in data sharing & enforcement,
Building capacity for effective enforcement and prosecution. The CBP is flexible and open to validating the appropriateness/feasibility of the strategic approaches with a partner post-award.

Demand reduction through behavior change;
International Cooperation on CWT issues enhanced
