This Case Digest was created to fill this information gap by providing data on actual cases from Africa, Asia and Latin America and thereby generate more knowledge of financial flows associated with the illegal wildlife trade and what payment mechanisms are used by those perpetrating the crime.
The Digest begins with a glossary of terms, which is a collection of financial terms that describe methods of value transfer between buyers and sellers of illicit goods.
