The Living with Tigers report is in many respects a direct response to a considerable conservation success story, which is that wild tiger populations are on the rise following a 2010 agreement by tiger range countries and their partners to double the global population of the species by 2022. This recovery has been highly uneven though, with South Asia accounting for the vast majority of this increase.
This report highlights the importance of securing biologically rich tiger landscapes, which not only provide protection for the remaining wild tiger population, but also harbor critically important goods and services that millions of people rely on. Ranging from the world’s largest mangrove forests to temperate forests and snowy mountains, these landscapes mitigate climate change, safeguard freshwater, and reducing the impact of disasters.
