In December 2019 - January 2020 the UNDP/GEF Project “Reducing Maritime Trafficking of Wildlife between Africa and Asia” provided technical support to the Government of Kenya for development of the Proposal to develop an IMO resolution on Guidelines for the Prevention and Suppression of the Smuggling of Wildlife on Ships Engaged in International Maritime Traffic (FAL 44/18/1). The proposal was approved by the IMO’s Facilitation Committee (FAL 44) in September 2020 and endorsed by the IMO Council in June 2021. First draft of the IMO Guidelines for the Prevention and Suppression of the Smuggling of Wildlife on Ships Engaged in International Maritime Traffic was developed by a Working Group, including Kenya Government, TRAFFIC, WWF, UNDP, United for Wildlife Transport Taskforce and the support of the IMO Secretariat. After external review on the Draft by selected IMO member states and relevant private sector and government entities, the Guidelines draft will be further presented and discussed with a wider group of international stakeholders and updated based on stakeholder comments, before submission of the final Draft to the IMO Secretariat in December 2021. To support consensus-building and effective stakeholder consultations for the finalization of the Guidelines draft, UNDP is looking for an International Consultant to lead the organization of an online consultation event/workshop.
