WCO supports Zambia Customs efforts to combat illegal trade in endangered species through improved intelligence capacity

29 mayo 2017

Under the auspices of the WCO-INAMA project (funded by Sweden, US Department of State, GiZ and the CITES Secretariat) the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) continue receiving support from the WCO in strengthening its intelligence function. The primary objective of this follow up mission was to go ahead in the process of enhancing the Intelligence capacity of the Zambia Customs administration to collect, process and disseminate intelligence with a focus on illegal trade in endangered species.

This support was provided through a WCO experts’ mission to the ZRA headquarters in Lusaka, held from 24th to 28th April 2018.

The support provided in the framework of this mission was based on the findings of a diagnostic developed during the previous WCO-INAMA mission to ZRA held in December 2016.  This diagnostic report outlined a range of key findings and recommendations across the range of intelligence capabilities assessed. Building on these findings the WCO experts provided strategic advice on the next steps to be accomplished by ZRA to streamline the intelligence function.

This mission was funded by the German Agency for International Cooperation (GiZ).
