The European Union and Africa Trade in Wildlife Information eXchange's (EU-TWIX and AFRICA-TWIX) are online tools developed to facilitate information exchange and international co-peration between law enforcement agencies across Europe and Central Africa.
An ongoing challenge facing law enforcement is ensuring smooth and timely communication between nations when dealing with transnational wildlife smuggling networks. The TWIX online platform is an online tool available to enforcement and management officials responsible for the implementation of international wildlife trade and CITES regulations, helping connect officials across borders and allow them to rapidly share information and expertise.
