About this book

From the preface:

"Utilisation of wildlife has been part of human history; in recent times financial profit has emerged as a major driver for such exploitation. When unregulated, such trade has significant negative impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem health. As the recent pandemic has shown, this can also have terrible effects on human well-being by spreading zoonotic diseases. There are also fast-emerging threats due to the use of the transportation sector and the use of technology facilitating illegal wildlife trade across borders.

Illegal wildlife trade has also appeared as one of the most significant forms of organised crime globally. It is, therefore, important to understand the details of transboundary trade in wildlife products. The international trade in wildlife is regulated by CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) and country laws and India is a signatory to CITES since 1976. This book provides detailed analyses of the CITES process and its implementation in lndia and South Asia.

Further, this book examines the trade dynamics of species that are illegally sourced from lndia, e.g. tiger parts, star tortoise and red sanders, as indicators of how international wildlife trade impacts the future of threatened species in our country. This book will be useful for policymakers, planners, researchers and for those who have an interest in the well-being of our wildlife and planet."
