Proceedings of the meeting on tiger conservation: Exploring potential collaboration between Myanmar and India

  • ICIMOD
  • Summary

Bilateral collaboration between India and Myanmar received a boost with the signing of an MoU for cooperation on “Combating timber trafficking and conservation of tigers and other wildlife” in February 2020. As a transboundary conservation and development initiative implemented by ICIMOD and our partners in China, India, and Myanmar, HI-LIFE is looking to strengthen bilateral conservation efforts between India and Myanmar by promoting the exchange of knowledge and best practices from across the Hindu Kush Himalaya. During a virtual meeting focused on tiger conservation and monitoring, we sought to identify possible areas where HI-LIFE can support the implementation of a bilateral mechanism to conserve tiger populations in the two countries. Close cross-border collaboration – through enhanced communication and information sharing, consultation, coordinated action, and joint implementation of wildlife management plans – can advance the mission of tiger conservation in the far-eastern Himalaya.
