CIPE developed this initiative in collaboration with the Yerevan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (YerCCI), the Armenian Lawyers Association (ALA), and the Corporate Governance Center (CGC).

This USD 2 million, 3-year project, a partnership between the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Global Wildlife Program and others, aims to reduce maritime trafficking of wildlife between Africa and Asia by strengthening wildlife law enforcement at ports and increasing cooperation between ports and other maritime stakeholders.

The Reducing Opportunities for Unlawful Transport of Endangered Species Partnership (ROUTES Partnership), brings together transport and logistics companies, government agencies, development groups, law enforcement, conservation organisations, academia and donors.
