Dr. Anupam Sarmah, Elephant Talk 2015

Managing Priority Corridors – Dr. Anupam Sarmah, WWF-India. Dr. Sarmah highlighted the fact that economic growth is a major driver for conflicts. He illustrated the status of corridors in both the North Bank Landscape (NBL) and Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong Landscape (KKL). He said that most of the corridors in NBL which are near Arunachal Pradesh are fast degrading due to various anthropogenic disturbances. He spoke of WWF-India’s initiative to secure the corridors through mapping, monitoring, community engagements, interim relief scheme to manage human-wildlife conflicts and capacity building support to the Forest Department.
