Capacity Building Global Support Program Enhance the institutional capacity necessary to support professionals in implementing tiger conservation over the long term. Professionalize core jobs to ensure on-the-ground capacity is available to the challenges in tiger conservation. Provide for ongoing opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaboration, and support among stakeholders to maintain the highest level of capacity.
Common capacity needs identified in NTRPs Individual Capacity Increase skills in management leadership Increase skills in monitoring of tiger, prey, and habitat. Increase skills in enforcement. Increase skills in community relations and addressing human-wildlife conflict. Increase motivation and interest in conservation.
Common capacity needs identified in NTRPs Institutional Capacity Prioritize the conservation mission within ministries or departments Create dedicated wildlife protection units Increase numbers of skilled staff Adopt new managerial strategies and tools Provide adequate infrastructure, equipment and tools Establish sustainable funding mechanisms for staff incentives, training and support Work collaboratively with communities for conservation stewardship.
Common capacity needs identified in NTRPs Community or Societal Capacity Increase recognition of importance of tigers and empower communities. Increase communication and collaboration among stakeholders. Increase trans-boundary collaboration.
Enhance the Institutional Capacity Necessary to Support Professionals in Implementing Tiger Conservation Over the Long Term
Institutional Capacity Building Program Train the necessary staff to learn what is needed to be done and how to implement the actions to change the culture and operation of institutions so wild tigers can be conserved more effectively (institutionalize ELF-like program). Establish a group of core consultants who are experts in the various areas of institutional capacity and have them conduct assessments of institutions in TRCs. These consultants will provide important base-line data from which to monitor progress. Conduct a bi-annual independent and mandatory evaluation of institutional capacity of the leading institutions with jurisdiction over tiger conservation in each TRC. The results of these evaluations would be published for transparency to the TRC community.
Professionalize core jobs to ensure on-the-ground capacity is available to address the challenges in tiger conservation.
Conservation and Development Hubs A cluster of contributing partner institutions and individuals committed to the overall objective and principles of the GTI Conservation and Development Network. The CDH may be organized on a regional basis and united by a commonality of core conservation priorities, trans-boundary issues and the underlying biophysical, institutional, and socio-cultural context.
Conservation and Development Hubs It will serve as a center of information flow and enable partners to address local and regional issues. University and college affiliates would provide a means for individuals to obtain appropriate certification and/or degrees.
Provide for ongoing opportunities for learning, knowledge sharing, collaboration and support among stakeholders to maintain the highest level of capacity
Community of Practice Communities of practice (CoP) are groups of people who share information, insight, experience, and tools about an area of common interest. The CoP framework will facilitate information management and knowledge transfer and capitalize upon the personal and professional knowledge, experience, and personal networks each member has developed over a lifetime, which can be leveraged for the benefit of tigers. Elements of connectivity have evolved from the SI and WB pilot GTI Training of Trainers Conservation Practitioners course.
Expected Outcomes Increased numbers of skilled and professionalized staff working on the front lines in protected areas. Establishment of effective management support structures in protected areas. Increased collaborations among governments, non- governmental organizations and academic institutions. Increased communication and knowledge sharing among stakeholders.
