In October we held the second webinar in our Learning in Practice Webinar Series. The webinar focussed on community-led management of wildlife impacts via a discussion of three case studies from Zimbabwe and India. Dr Lovemore Sibanda from WildCRU's Trans-Kalahari Predator Programme presented on developing a community guardian programme to reduce livestock depredation in Zimbabwe. Dr Mayukh Chatterjee from Chester Zoo presented on the Terai Tiger Project and the primary response teams for efficient conflict management in India. Nandita Hazarika from EcoSystems-India presented on building communities capacities to coexist with wildlife in India.
Following the three presentations the webinar broke out into a moderated discussion with input from Dr Jenny Glikman, Dr Loki Osborn and Dr Koustubh Sharma, moderated by Dr Alexandra Zimmerman before Kristina Rodina from the FAO provided closing remarks.
