Solar-Powered Fence Mitigates Human-Elephant Conflict in Assam’s Raimona National Park

  • Assam

To address the persistent issue of human-elephant conflict (HEC), an 11-kilometer-long solar-powered fence has been successfully installed along the fringes of the Raimona National Park in Kokrajhar district, Assam. Covering 17 villages, the initiative aims to provide relief to 870 households facing challenges from the ongoing conflict between humans and elephants.

Implemented in two phases by the biodiversity conservation organization Aaranyak, the solar fence is part of ongoing efforts to promote coexistence between humans and elephants. The project received support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and collaboration with the local community and Forest Department of Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR), Assam.
