Vietnam’s Illegal Rhino Horn Trade: Undermining the Effectiveness of CITES

EIA released a new report, "Vietnam's Illegal Rhino Horn Trade," which describes how Vietnam has failed to meet its CITES obligations designed to protect rhinos. This briefing summarizes key points from a recently submitted Pelly Petition to the US government to certify Vietnam as diminishing the effectiveness of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) for trade in rhino horn products. EIA is calling for the US to impose trade sanctions on Vietnam. Sanctions should continue on Vietnam until it fully implements its CITES obligations, enacts and completely enforces a total ban on all domestic rhino horn trade, and sustains a comprehensive crack down on the criminal syndicates behind the rhino horn trade.

On August 17th, the world’s governments will convene in Geneva, Switzerland, for the 18th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES CoP18). At CoP18, governments (or “Parties” in CITES parlance) will address the most pressing trade-related conservation issues facing wildlife and plant species around the world. EIA will be at CoP18 working to ensure that protections for threatened species like elephants, rhinos, and rosewood will be strengthened and to hold to account those Parties that have failed to meet CITES requirements.
