CITES, AfCFTA, and Livelihoods - Implications of the COP19 Appendices Proposals
In this note, we make preliminary comments on the possible livelihood implications of current and proposed amendments to the listing of species on the CITES Appendices. Our purpose is to encourage all Parties to take into further consideration the livelihood implications of these listings.
Socio-economic factors may have a major influence on whether the aims of CITES trade measures will be realised... Further, for African Parties to CITES, these trade measures may also be at odds with AfCFTA, and livelihood impact assessments could identify pathways for policy coherence.
