Data is collected from scientific literature, reports, and expert professionals, and includes information on various attributes … Continue reading Corridor Profiles
We analyzed peer-reviewed literature on connectivity and corridors for terrestrial mammals in South-Asia, to identify trends in connectivity research. We identified key research gaps and highlighted future directions that may aid efforts to robustly study connectivity.
With an objective of analyzing the corridor and connectivity sections of TCPs, we aim to identify opportunities for improvement, verify incorporation of NTCA recommendations, and align TCPs with current global standards.
With a focus on engaging with multiple sectors to ensure corridor conservation, the white paper will discuss possible mechanisms of land use change regulation within corridors and ways to incorporate suggestions in land use change policy.
Human activities have accelerated the decline and extinction of several animal species in recent times. The frequency with which we are losing biodiversity is higher than ever before. Habitat loss is a major threat to animals across the globe.
