With conservation challenges and threats to India’s wildlife and natural ecosystems constantly evolving, WCT’s research teams across our departments take up existing and imminent problems from the ground up, gather data, analyse it across varied frameworks, make recommendations that are grounded in subject expertise, and offer solutions tailored to the situations. We practise conservation advocacy based on ground evidence across disciplines as varied as ecology, economy, law enforcement, landscape connectivity, road ecology and genetics to name a few.

The WCT publications available for download on this page are intended to benefit scientists, researchers, students, government officials and the general public.

Wildlife Conservation Trust – Quarter 1 Report

April to June, 2017

Wildlife Conservation Trust - Quarter 1 Report - April to June 2017The Result Based Management (RBM) is an internal monitoring mechanism that has an inbuilt system to track results and evaluate programs and projects. The Annual Work Plan (AWP) for the year 2017-18 was developed as part of this RBM approach through plotting of Project Implementation Plans (PIPs).

The AWP and PIP relate the activities to the budgets and funding sources, help monitor and track the progress of the activities and eventually form the foundation of periodic reviews. This ultimately leads to production of reports as part of the management information system framework.

A Policy Framework for Connectivity Conservation and Smart Green Linear Infrastructure Development in the Central Indian and Eastern Ghats Tiger Landscape-Vol 1

Policy Framework for Connectivity Conservation by WCT

This policy framework for tiger connectivity in the Central Indian and Eastern
Ghats tiger landscape uses extensive data on tiger presence, existing and
proposed roads, railways and canals, and presents results which can be used
by policymakers and planners for incorporating “smart” and “green”
measures that addresses both the needs of development and movement of
multiple species of wildlife in the planning stage of linear infrastructure
projects itself, thus reducing time and cost over-runs in infrastructure project
implementation.
