Indigenous rights and culture in Adivasi forest communities

Description

The new Tribal Forests Rights Act gives indigenous tribes the right to exploit local forests in a sustainable manner. The execution of the law has, however, been incomplete. The project aims to facilitate the execution in manner that secures the tribal way of life. The aim is to continue working to secure due implementation of the forest rights under the Act also to revive traditional collective rights and community forest so that the people of Adivasi forest communities - whose majority are women -, their rights & their sustainable life can not be displaced without their free informed consent by mining & forest policies or industries.
