In furtherance of the Global Tiger Initiative launched in 2008 under the auspices of the World Bank, on 21–24 November 2010, leaders of several countries assembled at the 1st International Tiger Conservation Forum in Saint Petersburg, proposed by the Russian Federation.
The outcome of the Forum was the adoption of two documents: the Declaration on Tiger Conservation by the heads of the governments and the Global Tiger Recovery Programme.
The overarching goal of the Global Tiger Recovery Programme was to reverse the rapid decline of the tiger population in the wild that threatened its extinction and to strive to double the population of tigers across their entire range by 2022.
The 2nd International Tiger Forum plans to present the outcomes of implementation of the Global Tiger Recovery Programme and outline further goals and concrete actions to ensure the conservation of a sustainable global tiger population.
The Forum will take place on 5 September 2022 on ‘day zero’ of the Eastern Economic Forum and is set to be attended by the leaders of the tiger range countries.
The Forum’s objectives include consolidating tools to facilitate the regular exchange of information and effective international coordination of actions, outlining new guidelines, and launching new measures to promote cooperation.
The Forum will bring together heads of countries, representatives of relevant government ministries and agencies, academics, and international experts on the protection of endangered species.
