    Programme Description

    The MSc in International Wildlife Trade and Conservation will provide students with the knowledge base to address trade regulation and management at both the national and international levels.

    The programme will provide information on the workings of The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and how this compliments other multi-lateral environment agreements.

    It will provide students with knowledge to:

    * Minimise the negative effects of trade on species.
    * Increase the effectiveness of regulatory and market measures to promote conservation of species in trade and use.
    * Ensure that local communities dependant on wildlife products are respected and have their interests taken into account when managing species for use and conservation.
    * Integrate the planning and management of international trade and biodiversity conservation.

    The programme is relevant to the work of national management and scientific authorities, international and national NGOs, consultancy firms and contractors, international agencies and donors.
