Abstract/Summary Kaziranga National Park is now a protected area of global significance. While some issues remain to be addressed within the protected area, particularly with respect to constant poaching, the main challenges in the future will come from outside, and particularly from regional pressures at a landscape scale: Assam Government development priorities, and more diffuse pressures caused by a growing population and higher economic expectations. Kaziranga is thus facing a situation similar to that experienced in many other parts of the world, where success in management within the boundaries of the protected area itself is threatened by changes in the wider landscape. Future success will depend on the Government of Assam’s commitment to adopting a landscape approach to conservation throughout the state, and to ensuring that changes that take place outside the park do not create pressures so great that it can no longer function effectively.
