Human-elephant conflict threatens the lives and livelihoods of villagers and elephants in Myanmar. This project will educate villagers on how to live safely alongside elephants, turning fear into understanding and reducing hostility. It will also introduce seasonal electric fencing which prevents crop raids without permanently restricting elephant movement through customary feeding grounds and corridors. It will introduce the method, district by district, institutionalising it as a government programme to ensure sustainability and safeguard human and elephant lives and livelihoods.
