report card HCMEvaluation of performance in reducing consumer wildlife crime in four districts of Ho Chi Minh City during the period 2015-2016

The consumer wildlife crime reduction campaign in the four violation hotspot districts of Ho Chi Minh City continues to show signs of ineffective law enforcement with the number of violations only decreasing by 36.4%. Also, with 63.6% of business establishments which were reported with wildlife violations having not yet been addressed, it is obvious that the issue of wildlife consumption is getting more and more complicated in the four district areas. It is hoped the People’s Committees of the four districts will be more determined in future in getting the relevant agencies to improve their performance in reducing wildlife violations. A reduction of 95% should be considered an acceptable target and reflective of tight and effective controls over consumer wildlife crime in the four districts.

Evaluation of performance in reducing consumer wildlife crime in four districts of Hanoi during the period 2015-2016

The consumer wildlife crime reduction campaign in the four violation hotspot districts of Hanoi continues to show signs of ineffective law enforcement with the number of violations only decreasing by 34.5%. Also, with 65.5% of business establishments which were reported with wildlife violations having not yet been addressed, it is obvious that authorities did not prioritize the issue of wildlife consumption. It is expected that the People’s Committees of the four districts will be more determined in future in getting the relevant agencies to improve their performance in reducing wildlife violations. A reduction of 95% should be considered an acceptable achievement target and reflective of tight and effective controls over consumer wildlife crime in the four districts.

The Penal Code Revision: A wildlife protection milestone for Vietnam

At ENV, we are looking ahead to the future with the ambition of reaching the point in time where the law and application of the law afford endangered wildlife an opportunity to survive and recover in nature.

In late November, the government signed into law the new penal code, greatly strengthening legal protection for wildlife in Vietnam, a significant step forward toward reaching this goal and reinforcing the government’s commitment to tackling the illegal wildlife trade.
