Governments and Conservation Experts to Review Progress on ‘Tx2’ in New Delhi
Senior officials from the 13 tiger range countries are convening in New Delhi with conservationists and representatives from law enforcement and donor agencies, and specialists on infrastructure to review progress since the 2010 Tiger Summit and coordinate actions for the next phase of the Global Tiger Recovery Program.
The 1st Stocktaking Meeting to review implementation of the GTRP will be held May 15-17, hosted by the Government of India, the National Tiger Conservation Authority, Ministry of Environment and Forests, and co-sponsored by the Global Tiger Initiative and its partners, the Global Tiger Forum, and the World Bank. The St. Petersburg Declaration on Tiger Conservation, adopted at the Tiger Summit in 2010, calls for regular high-level meetings to review progress in implementing the GTRP and ensure continued political commitment to tiger recovery.
The tiger range countries and all participating parties hope to reinvigorate the processes and ground-level action already underway in several critical areas, particularly on threats to tiger habitats, and illegal wildlife trade and trafficking.
During several thematic sessions, the tiger range countries and experts will consider priorities for the next 2-3 years to fulfill National Tiger Recovery Priorities and implement Global Support Programs that are the basis of the Global Tiger Recovery Program. Updates from the conference will be reflected in a comprehensive Global Tiger Recovery Program Implementation Report, which will be released in June.
