Asean-Wildlife Enforcement Network (Asean-Wen) and the United States are establishing information-sharing channels in order to stop East-West wildlife crime.
In addition to fostering better regional and international cooperation for this, the Asean-US Wildlife Crime Forensics Exchange aims to increase the capacity of scientists to support the fight against wildlife crime.
