International Environmental Crime

International environmental crime poses challenges to governments, international organizations, regional organizations, non-governmental organizations, and officials attempting to combat it. Environmental damage caused by illegal trade is growing, with local and international crime syndicates worldwide earning an estimated US$22-31 billion annually from hazardous waste dumping, smuggling proscribed hazardous materials, and exploiting and trafficking protected natural resources (source: UNEP).
