Larger than Elephants: Inputs for an EU strategic approach to wildlife conservation in Africa

This Africa report was published by EU B4Life in 2015, in response to the African wildlife crisis. It aims to identify the principal threats to African wildlife (including animals and plants) and the most appropriate responses. These include interventions to tackle broad wildlife conservation needs and the growing problem of illegal wildlife trade, as well as improving local rural livelihoods to reduce reliance on unsustainable use of wild resources and wildlife. Larger than Elephants is now serving as guidance for EU delegations and other development partners.
