The Forest Rights Act

Using the Forest Rights Act

If you are an activist working with forest dwellers, the following may be of use to you.

For Groups Working on Land and Resource Struggles in Forests

If your organisation is involved in land and resource struggles, the Campaign's "Guide to the Forest Rights Act" (attached below) is a general introduction to the Act and its powers.  However, please note that the situation varies from State to State, as do the dangers.  Therefore it would be best to contact an organisation in your State that is already involved in the struggle.  If you require help doing so, please contact us at the Contact Us page.

For Groups Fighting Projects or Displacement

The Forest Rights Act is now one of the most powerful weapons people have for resisting corporate projects or land grabs in the name of "development".  For more information on this, see:
