June 2018

The EPI Secretariat attended the 6th Global Environment Facility (GEF) Assembly in Danang, Vietnam. It was a delight to see so many EPI Member States in attendance. The Secretariat presented the EPI at a side-event where attendees included the World Bank, the UNDP, and senior representatives from countries including Ethiopia, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Malawi and Botswana. Peter Middlebrook, from the EPI’s Knowledge Partner Geopolicity, used his presentation to highlight potential linkages between elephant conservation and wider Sustainable Development Goals, and therefore how the GEF can offer unique opportunities for the funding of National Elephant Action Plans.
