Reducing conflict and fostering coexistence between elephants and people
People and elephants have similar needs. They both require access to water, food, space, mobility, and safety. People also need to sustain livelihoods. Where this overlap occurs, there is heightened competition for these resources, which often leads to negative and sometimes fatal confrontation. Coexistence between people and elephants within such landscapes is therefore a big challenge.
