Indian PM wants better coordination between wildlife enforcement agencies

Sep 06, 2012

Indian PM Manmohan Singh has called for greater coordination between intelligence and enforcement agencies to counter the ill-effects of poaching that are posing major problems to wildlife conservation efforts.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while addressing a meeting of the National Board for Wildlife said that the demand for body parts and derivatives of wild animals is posing a serious threat to conservation efforts and these illegal trading networks have cross border linkages. He said that the Centre is assisting the state governments in strengthening their anti-poaching operations. 

He also called for strengthening International cooperation including joint efforts with China, Nepal and Russia for tiger conservation to break the nexus between poachers and illegal wildlife markets. The Prime Minister said that the Centre is in the process of drafting amendments that would give a role to Gram Sabhas and Gram Panchayats in scheduled areas in the declaration and management of Protected Areas.
