Worldwide, environmental crime is the fourth-largest transnational organised crime. This episode focuses on the illegal wildlife trade (IWT), where the pace of the global response does not match the scale of the threat, although many local authorities embraced the challenge long before it was on the global anti-financial crime agenda. Host Alexandria Reid is joined by Atuweni Agbermodji, who headed Malawi’s Financial Intelligence Authority and was instrumental in driving change to tackle IWT crime in the country.​ This week’s ‘In the News’ includes CFCS’s Maria Sofia Reiser and RUSI Associate Fellow David Artingstall.
