4th edition Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum - Multidisciplinary Conversation

After the magnitude of the success of the Asian Elephants in the Wild conferences and its positive impacts in the field of conservation, we realized that there was a need to broaden our scope of conversation to discuss pan-regional issues. The conference was rechristened to Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum to focus the conversation on other powerful drivers of conservation issues including climate change, development, depletion of essential natural resources like water and the overwhelming influence of technology and culture on successful conservation efforts, seeking to bring them together on the same platform.

The Forum was addressed by prominent personalities, individuals and organizations, authorities from the Government of India and neighboring countries, conservationists and activists, scientists, researchers, and technologists actively involved in work with Asian Elephants in the wild, environment conservation, conservation law, and social impact case studies.

The 1st Edition of the Asian Elephants in the Wild: Elephant Talk Conference 2014 was held on the 6th & 7th of November 2014 in Guwahati, Assam, India. It was the biggest congregation of environmentalists, conservationists, scientists, researchers, geographers, wildlife managers ever assembled in North East India to deliberate the future of wild elephant populations in India, Myanmar, and Bhutan. The event culminated in a 10 point resolution that represented some of the imperatives of Asian Elephant conservation.
