Mapping Land Conflicts in India


Listen to the full audio (above) of the talk by  Kumar Sambhav Shrivastava, Ankur Paliwal, and Bhasker Tripathy, where they present an analysis of 331 ongoing land conflicts in India which affect close to 36 lakh people and span over 10 lakhs hectares of land.

In this presentation, they address how, why, and where these conflicts are emerging and what are the implications of these conflicts for local communities and investment policies in India.

Kumar Sambhav Shrivastava writes on issues at the intersection of human rights, environment, industry and politics; Ankur Paliwal divides his time between coordinating Land Conflict Watch, and exploring stories about science, global health, gender and the environment;  Bhasker Tripathy covers and writes on the issues of rural development, agriculture, migration, women empowerment, and renewable energy.
