The stakeholder dialogue will also serve to increase the effectiveness of ongoing coordinated responses to the illegal trade of wildlife being undertaken by the United Nations System, UN member states and civil society, and to raise public awareness and momentum around the causes, impacts of, and achievements made in combatting the illegal trade of wildlife and forest products.

Attendees will include heads of UN agencies, ministers of government, ambassadors, leaders from the private sector, academia and the UN, civil society, media and celebrities. The event will include high-level remarks and a private reception, commencing at 6:30 p.m. and ending at 8:00 p.m.
