Moving beyond Single Species focus to Conservation of Habitats, Governance & Technology

Abstract: The Asian Elephants in the Wild Conference was launched in 2014 to discuss the impact of human development stressing the elephant migration corridors. The outcomes of that conference led to establishment of agroforestry as one of the key models for food, soil and water security for both, humans and animals in the region. Further deliberation at the Asian Elephants in the Wild Conference in 2015 underscored the need to broaden the scope of the dialogue from single species conservation towards broader drivers of conservation such as climate change, human development, strain on vital natural resources like water, forests, etc.
