International Conference on Human Wildlife Conflicts, Food Security, Livelihoods and Conservation of Biodiversity
12 October 2017      Bangalore, India      ICAR-IIHR
 

Human-Wildlife Conflict (HWC) is a recurring phenomenon arising whenever and wherever humans and wild animals compete for declining resources, mostly around the habitat of the latter.

The face-to-face capacity building activities – the BES-Net “Trialogues” – are multi-stakeholder dialogues focusing on specific policy questions at the national and regional levels. By facilitating fruitful discussions among the three BES-Net communities of policy, science/knowledge holders and practice, the trialogues will contribute to addressing specific policy issues to help unlock shifts in the development trajectory of societies towards sustainability.
