Leaders in behavioural change stimulate innovations on how to reduce demand for illegal wildlife products
The 2nd International Conference Revisiting Efforts to Reduce Demand for Illegal Wildlife Products: Showcasing Best Practice in Behavioural Change sought to build on the collaborations now occurring across the Community of Practice, and empower members to increase their efficiency in several key areas of behavioural science application within a wildlife conservation context.
- To showcase best practices from Social and Behavioural Change Communication (SBCC) application, to catalyse innovation, fresh ideas and pioneering approaches to invigorate current Demand Reduction strategies and interventions for conservation impact
- To stimulate SBCC Community of Practice exchanges of skills, experience and knowledge, to amplify efforts around enhanced coordination, including potentially establishing Working Groups on key topics
