Synopsis

Report offering specific advice to policymakers and advocates seeking to use the framework of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to assess and mitigate the risk that arms transfers will be diverted to poaching networks or exacerbate the negative impacts of militarizing wildlife protection. Gender-based violence (GBV) is identified as one of the risks posed by arms proliferation, wildlife poaching and the militarisation to counter these crimes.
