Request for Proposals to: Develop and Implement an Initiative to Reduce the Demand for Illegal Wild Meat in Thailand

The large-scale consumption of wildlife parts, products, and derivatives across the globe is increasingly being recognized as a driving factor toward substantial declines in populations of many species. Wildlife is purchased and consumed for a variety of reasons, including for nutrition, as pets, as medicines, for spiritual and aesthetic reasons, and many more. While there have been many reports which show that wildlife trade in Thailand is significant, very little was known about the consumption of wild meat in the country.

The objective of this initiative, the first to tackle wild meat consumption in Thailand, is to communicate that it is no longer socially acceptable to purchase and consume wild meat and thereby reduce demand among the priority target group. 

Please find full details for the proposal here

Please send by 10 September 2021 via email to Katie Mabbutt, Project Support Officer, TRAFFIC

Requests for Proposals for Mercy is Power Campaign Impact Evaluation

Global consumer demand for elephant ivory and tiger parts is a major driver of poaching and the consequent decline in numbers of these species. In Thailand, trade in ivory items is illegal unless they are from domesticated elephants, whilst all trade in tiger products is illegal.

TRAFFIC is a partner in the project “Combatting Illegal Wildlife Trade in Thailand, focusing on Ivory, Rhino Horn, Tiger and Pangolins”, funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and managed by UNDP. As part of the project, TRAFFIC implemented the “Mercy is Power Campaign” in July – September 2021, a Social and Behaviour Change (SBC) initiative to reduce the demand in Thailand for elephant ivory and tiger products for spiritual reasons (e.g., amulets, small carvings)

The objective of this assignment is to evaluate the impacts of the Mercy is Power Campaign. The impacts could be evaluated by comparing those exposed to the campaign with a control group who have not been exposed to the campaign, or by comparing the differences between those exposed to the campaign and those in UWA’s end-line research, or both. The best option(s) should be specified in the proposal.

Please find full details for the proposal here

Please send the proposal by 10 September, 5:00 pm UK time, via email to Katie Mabbutt, Project Support Officer TRAFFIC Email: Enable JavaScript to view protected content.
