Forest Community Rights and Coal Mining

Greenpeace and Kalpavriksh launched Countering Coal, a report about environmental damage and human rights violations against tribal and other forest dwellers in the forests of Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh, that are under threat from the Indian government’s massive coal expansion programme. The launch took place in Hyderabad, where the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity is currently in session.

The report that took over sixteen months to compile is the first to speak with such a large section of the communities affected by coal mining. The picture painted from the personal testimonies tells a harrowing story of the systematic failure of the Indian Government to protect the constitutional rights of these communities.

Coal mining in the forests of Central India poses a severe threat to biodiversity forest dependent communities. Join the movement to save the forests of Central India from coal mining. www.junglistan.org/act
