World Enforcement Coalition And Networks On Fighting Illicit Trade
Clean Supply Chains for a Secure World
WECAN is a network of coalitions and net-centric partnerships (A Network of Networks) – focused on fighting illicit trade and related security threats globally. Our credo is “We Can Do More Together” -- fighting illicit networks with WECAN Partnerships across borders, sectors, industries, and communities to prevent and disrupt transnational criminal and illicit networks who trade in counterfeit and pirated goods such as medicines, luxury apparel, technology, automotive parts, and other illicit commodities including trafficking in narcotics, endangered wildlife, illegally-harvested timber and environmentally-sensitive materials, food stuff, illegal tobacco and alcohol, etc. Often such illicit trade is associated with human trafficking and slavery.
WECAN’s goal is to help better coordinate, leverage, and harness global efforts to counter illicit activities across borders, industries, and markets by providing a united voice and more vibrant coalition for the mobilization and activation of more robust public-private partnerships to fight webs of corruption and criminality in today's illicit markets and to promote clean, secure supply chains and safer communities.
