The Minister for Environment and Forest Prakash Javadekar today released document on Best Practices and launched a portal on Human Elephant Conflict on the eve of World Elephant Day, 2020.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Javadekar said, efforts are in full swing to provide food and water to the animals in the forests itself to deal with the growing human-animal conflict cases. 

He said, India is committed to the cause of saving elephants and other animals and is working towards robust, practical and cost effective solutions to end the human animal conflict. 

The Minister also stressed on the need of capacity building and training of forest staff. 

He said, Government has taken initiative of fodder and water augmentation in forest areas so that animals will get food and water in forest area and will not come outside. He added that LiDAR technology is being used for it.

Minister of State for Environment and Forest Babul Supriyo said, it is a moment of pride that India is having 60 percent of Global population of Asian Elephants. He said, killing of innocent animals will not be tolerated by the Government.
 
The World Elephant Day is observed every year on 12th August to spread awareness about the animal. It was launched in 2012 to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. 

Poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity are some of the threats to both African and Asian elephants. 

Indian Elephant has also been listed in the Appendix I of the Convention of the Migratory species in the recently concluded 13th  Conference of Parties on Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS)  at Gandhi Nagar, Gujarat in February this year.
