    The case study comes from Assam, India, where the pilot project was established between Chester Zoo (then North of England Zoological Society), United Kingdom and EcoSystems - India, a regional non-governmental organization (NGO), to learn about the conflict and determine the best way towards sustainable solutions with the impacted communities. This pilot phase became the catalyst for the Assam Haathi Project, which worked with local communities to understand the situation further and identify solutions for addressing the issue collaboratively. The project ran for 14 years, from 2004 to 2018, and conducted many activities to address the human-elephant conflict. This case study highlights a subset of activities that have been conducted by the Assam Haathi Project.

    Developing an insurance scheme to mitigate the impacts caused by wildlife 2023

    The case study comes from Kenya, where the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) started the Livelihoods Insurance from Elephants (LIFE) project with funding provided by the UK government's Darwin Initiative. The project started to explore the potential for insurance in mitigating negative impacts from human-wildlife conflicts. At the start of the LIFE project, IIED partnered with AB Consultants, an independent market driver seeking to increase insurance penetration in Kenya and other parts of sub-Saharan Africa. In the end of the project, the insurance scheme was formally approved by theInsurance Regulatory Authority (IRA), an insurance regulator in Kenya, in February 2021. The implementation plan was presented to the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife in October 2021 who approved it for implementation in 2022. It is hoped that the scheme will be piloted in five hot spot counties, including the research counties of Kajiado and Taita Taveta.

    Spatial planning to ensure future coexistence between wildlife and people 2023

    This case study highlights Ecoexist Trust's efforts in Botswana's Okavango Panhandle to foster coexistence between people and elephants. The region faces conflicts due to shared space between 35,000 people and 20,000 elephants. Ecoexist employs a holistic approach, conducting research to identify critical elephant pathways and overlap with human activities. They collaborated with land authorities to develop the Land Use Conflict Information Strategy (LUCIS), strategically mapping agricultural areas away from frequent elephant movement paths. LUCIS helps allocate land effectively, preventing conflicts and supporting farmers in protecting fields. Trust-building and ongoing research were crucial to success. Ecoexist engaged stakeholders to incorporate preferences in land allocation. Positive outcomes include identifying suitable agricultural areas and scaling up the approach to other regions. Challenges include government staff turnover and adaptability to different contexts. Overall, Ecoexist's spatial planning approach promotes coexistence, reduces conflicts, and supports communities in the Okavango Panhandle.
