Living with Tigers in Nepal: poverty reduction for human-wildlife coexistence
Ms Alexandra Zimmermann
Host Country Institutions:
DESCRIPTION: Recovering tiger populations in Nepal are leading to increased human-wildlife conflict, undermining conservation efforts by threatening lives and livelihoods in poor communities. We will address the underlying drivers of conflict through poverty alleviation, behaviour change, capacity building and understanding the ecological dynamics of tigers.
PURPOSE: In project sites around Chitwan and Bardia, the safety of people and tigers is secured and poverty reduced by changing behaviours, building capacity, improving livelihoods, and reducing human-tiger conflict.
