United Nations Environment Programme ; International Union for Conservation of Nature ; Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora ; Wildlife Trade Monitoring Network (2013)

This rapid response assessment report brings together critical up-to-date information from the CITES-recognized systems that monitor the status of elephants, the illegal killing of elephants, and the legal and illegal trade in ivory. Collectively, these systems deliver consistent, evidence-based information to improve our understanding of the dynamics of the illegal ivory supply chain.
