Legal Material on Human wildlife conflict and Biodiversity and Conservation areas
BY CPR-NAMATI ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE PROGRAM

The CPR-Namati Environmental Justice Program, with support from Duleep Matthai Nature Conservation Trust has prepared handouts on the legal mechanisms available in Human wildlife conflict in Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Odisha and Karnataka. These handouts entail:

  • A brief overview of the present status of human wildlife conflict,
  • The measures taken by the Centre and states to tackle this, and,
  • The compensatory mechanisms available in case of human wildlife conflict.

The information in the handouts is based on publicly available information and discussions with partner organisations. It is available in Hindi, Gujarati, Odia and Kannada (will be available soon).

The Program also announced the release of material on the legal framework for conservation and protection areas. This material provides information on the legal provisions under which these areas are formed, the spaces available for the local communities, and the monitoring mechanisms. It is also available in Hindi, Odia, Gujarati and Kannada.

The views shared belong to individual faculty and researchers and do not represent an institutional stance on the issue.
