Kanha-Pench Landscape Symposium (KPLS)
Held bi-annually in central India
The Kanha-Pench Landscape Symposium (KPLS) is the first of the bi-annual, 3-day symposia organized by the group Conserving the Landscapes of the Central Indian Highlands. The KPLS brings together researchers, conservationists and managers working in the Kanha-Pench Landscape to share their perspectives and findings, and develop networks for collaborative future work in the region.
Participants in the symposium have research expertise in varied environment-related disciplines, including conservation, ecology, wildlife science, climate and social science. The researchers and managers involved work on issues directly related to the sustainable management of the Kanha-Pench landscape and its biodiversity, and have a continued interest in actively contributing to science-informed management and conservation.
The KPLS is a pilot effort to strengthen collaboration and dialogue between researchers and managers in central India. Read about the outcomes of the first symposium, held in 2014.
