AWCSG promotes and coordinates Participatory Conservation Planning Workshops to identify priority actions for Asian wild cattle species. Representatives of governments, universities and research institutes, NGOs and other conservation organisations come together to assess the status of these species and to discuss how threats to their survival might be reduced. A comprehensive series of conservation actions are identified and endorsed by workshop participants for inclusion in a Conservation Strategy or Action Plan.

These workshops are conducted at the Regional as well as the National level. Regional workshops help ensure that populations and actions are prioritized across multiple range states, and National workshops allow a representative range of stakeholders from each country to plan more detailed national level actions.

The Strategic Conservation Planning Process

This process has been developed by the IUCN SSC Species Conservation Planning Task Force. Further information is available at:
