Fedotov also used the opportunity to announce the forthcoming launch of the ‘Global Programme for Combating Wildlife and Forest Crime,’ which will deliver regional and national assistance to support law-enforcement responses, enable legislation to address crime, and strengthen investigative, prosecutorial and judicial capacities. Fedotov stressed that the approximate annual US$10 billion in profits from illegal wildlife trade ranked it alongside the trafficking of human beings, arms and drugs in terms of illicit profits.
