The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training has a Regional Resident Legal Advisor (RLA) for Counter Wildlife Trafficking, based in Vientiane, Lao PDR, to enhance the capacity of Lao PDR, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam to combat illegal wildlife trafficking. Currently, the RLA’s primary goals are to increase wildlife trafficking prosecutions and improve regional and inter-agency cooperation. The capacity-building focus is on training prosecutors and law enforcement officers to use sophisticated investigation techniques, including following the money, to prosecute organizers and leaders of transnational wildlife trafficking organizations.
