A comprehensive examination of the way in which the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) is implemented and policed. CITES is one of the oldest international enviromental agreements and has been responisble for some striking conservation successes. But, given the way it has evolved, there are also some critical weaknesses that unscrupulous countires and commercial interests can exploit, especially regarding information, institutions and enforcement. The convention needs reform and this book gives a trenchant critique, including practical and effective recommendations for change.
