Human–wildlife interactions (HWIs) have become a frequent phenomenon in peri-urban landscapes (PULs), making them arenas of human-wildlife interactions. There is a need to identify and implement effective governance approaches to avoid conflicts and alleviate the negative impacts of human-wildlife interactions in peri-urban landscapes. The workshop offers a platform for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to exchange and network on human-wildlife interactions in peri-urban landscapes.

What to expect from the event?

Discussion about characterization of HWI in PULs and characterization of PULs as arenas of HWI. Exchange of experiences among workshop participants related to policy-making to tackle HWI in PULs. Initiation of the policy exchange platform that can develop a common and interdisciplinary scientific language about HWIs in PULs. Summary of the workshop with a joint policy brief prepared by its attendees.


We will start discussions based on results from a short, ten-minutes long survey You are warmly invited to respond, regardless of your experience and planned participation in the workshop.
