The World Bank – Global Tiger Recovery Program: 2010-2022

The overarching goal adopted in the Hua Hin declaration and supported by the Global Tiger Recovery Program (GTRP) is to reverse the rapid decline of wild tigers and to strive to double the number of wild tigers across their range by 2022. The Tiger Range Country’s (TRCs) as a group is ready to take on this challenge although not all TRCs individually will be able to achieve this goal. To solve the tiger crisis, which represents the larger Asian biodiversity crisis, the TRCs, international organizations, and civil society have come together on a collaborative platform within the framework of the Global Tiger Initiative (GTI). After a two-year process of sharing knowledge and best practices and developing a common vision, the GTRP was developed, with the shared goal of doubling the number of wild tigers globally by 2022 through actions to: 1) effectively manage, preserve, protect, and enhance tiger habitats; 2) eradicate poaching, smuggling, and illegal trade of tigers, their parts, and derivatives; 3) cooperate in transboundary landscape management and in combating illegal trade; 4) engage with indigenous and local communities; 5) increase the effectiveness of tiger and habitat management; and 6) restore tigers to their former range. The foundation of the GTRP is thirteenth individual National Tiger Recovery Priorities (NTRPs) that outline the urgent priority activities each TRC will take to contribute to the global goal. Program management and coordination arrangements are built on the establishment and strengthening, as needed, of robust national implementation mechanisms, supported by TRC-wide and global processes to ensure mutual accountability and transparency through vigorous monitoring and reporting of progress.
