The Summit met with success: crucial high level multi-government backing was given to the creation of a plan to help reverse the decline wild tigers populations.
WWF also committed to spend US$50 million over the next 5 years on tiger conservation, and set a goal of increasing that to US$85 million.
Since the Summit, the governments have held two meetings in 2012 - one in New Delhi in May, and the other in Bhutan in October - to take stock of tiger recovery efforts across the tiger's range.
WWF continues to support tiger range countries in implementation of their national tiger recovery plans, and particularly on working towards Zero Poaching. Poaching remains the single biggest threat to the species and the goal of doubling wild tiger numbers.
