A coordination meeting between wildlife officials from Nepal and India was concluded recently.

The participants shared views on measures for management in wildlife movement, containment of human-wildlife conflict, curbing of poaching, and enhancement of mutual cooperation in the related field were discussed during the meeting, according to CNP Chief conservation officer Haribhakta Acharya who led the Nepali delegation in the meeting.

Besides, the meeting stressed the need for immediate dialogue among the officials of both countries in case of any issue that may emerge in the border areas in regard to the conservation of forest and wildlife so as to find a prompt solution.

The inter-border level regular meeting among the wildlife officials from neighbors would be organized up to three times a year in the past. For the past two years, they were meeting virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This time, they met physically.

The meeting was organized at India’s Valmiki Tiger Reserve.

The meeting was co-hosted by the Chitwan National Park and the Reserve. The Indian team was led by Reserve field director Dr K Neshmani.

Representatives from the Parsa National Park, Nawalparasi (Bardghat-Susta East), Division Forest Office, World Wildlife Fund, and National Trust for Nature Conservation among others participated in the meeting.
