Passing tougher penalties for poaching and illegal trafficking of wildlife
ICCF Kenya is a growing collaboration of leaders from Kenya’s business and NGO sectors who support and guide the Parliamentary Conservation Caucus – Kenya Chapter (PCC-K) with sound information and solutions for Kenya’s natural resource management challenges.
The PCC-K was established following an ICCF collaborative summit of African parliamentarians and U.S. Congressmen in August 2012 in Nairobi. ICCF Kenya supported the work of the caucus leaders in passing tougher penalties for poaching and illegal trafficking of wildlife through the Kenya Wildlife Conservation & Management Bill, 2013. The law gives greater incentives for ownership and management to the local communities who live directly with the wildlife, including critical compensation for human-wildlife conflicts.
We work to engage policymakers and the judiciary to address the illegal wildlife trade
In March 2014, ICCF and ICCF Kenya facilitated a solutions-oriented workshop on national water policy and its importance to economic development. And in November 2015, ICCF Kenya launched its Conservation Council, a non-partisan forum for policymakers to collaborate with one another and with leaders from Government, businesses, NGOs, and development institutions.
