The Management Effectiveness Evaluation (MEE) process is a global framework to evaluate the performance of protected areas. India is among the select countries in the world that has institutionalized the MEE process for its network of protected areas. India has not only independently assessed the effectiveness of 28 tiger reserves in 2006, but has taken this process forward, by extending this evaluation in 2010 to 39 tiger reserves and in 2014 to 43 tiger reserves. The outcomes of this assessment are encouraging and despite all odds, Field Directors and front-line staff are putting up a valiant effort to conserve our natural heritage. There has been an overall improvement in the overall MEE score of all 43 tiger reserves from 65 percent in 2010 to 69 percent in 2014.

Shri Prakash Javadekar, Minister of State (Independent Charge) Environment, Forests & Climate Change, Government of India released the MEE report on 20 January, 2015. He expressed happiness on the overall performance of the tiger reserves and urged the managers of the tiger reserves to closely monitor the performance of the 31 ‘headline indicators’ used in the MEE process
