New Publication - IUCN SSC Position Statement on Human-Wildlife Conflict

We are pleased to share our new IUCN SSC Position Statement on the Management of Human-Wildlife Conflict. This position statement summarises the most important aspects of understanding and addressing human-wildlife conflicts. The IUCN SSC Human-Wildlife Conflict Task Force urges governments, non-governmental organizations, researchers, practitioners, community leaders, environmental agencies and others to ensure that efforts to manage human-wildlife conflicts are pursued through well-informed, holistic, and collaborative processes that take into account underlying social, cultural and economic contexts.
