BACKGROUND

Country legal hubs are a user-friendly point of access to a comprehensive set of data and analysis on the statutory legal frameworks relating to sustainable wildlife management. This includes environmental protection, tenure rights, land use planning, the consumption (hunting and fishing) and non-consumption (ecotourism) use of wildlife, as well as animal production, animal health, and food safety and security.

Each legal hub provides:

  • historical and political background on the country;
  • access to relevant national normative texts by sector;
  • legal assessment of sectoral legislation;
  • overview of the domestication of international and regional instruments;
  • description of national institutions and their roles.
