Programme Description

Tiger populations are in crisis: without creating effectively managed people-wildlife landscapes across the tiger-range, tiger conservation is unattainable. Major threats including decline of habitats and prey numbers, poaching and human-wildlife conflict need to be tackled systematically. Threats leading to the decline of tiger populations as well as impacting human well-being, serve as part of a feedback loop that negatively reinforces impacts on all sides. The People-Tiger Landscape Partnership will intensify efforts to save wild tigers from extinction and ensure a more prosperous future for the people and tigers that jointly depend on a flourishing environment within the landscapes they share.

The start-up phase of the People-Tiger Partnership for Change will focus on a single landscape: the Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra, Indonesia.

The Leuser Ecosystem is the last remaining forest where Sumatran elephants, rhinos, tigers and orangutans roam together. Covering more than 2.6 million hectares, the Leuser rainforest is one of the most biodiverse environments left on Earth and supports over 5.7 million people. The Lion’s Share will take a holistic approach, financing multiple interventions aimed at tackling threats simultaneously. The Programme will focus on four key pillars: maintaining and restoring the ecosystem and flagship species populations, establishing sustainable financing mechanisms, supporting conservation-based development, and delivering effective communication campaigns and education.
