ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE PROGRAM

CPR’s Environmental Justice Program is an action research program implemented in collaboration with Namati, a legal empowerment organisation. The program studies issues and questions regarding environment law design, institutional action and public participation in India’s industrial, coastal and mining regions. Through its activities, the program aims to build an epistemic community geared towards finding solutions to environmental governance challenges.

The program has been operational since 2012. With field presence in four states , the program has produced several research reports, policy briefs and submissions and IEC materials on themes related to environment law and justice. The program has developed and implemented the method of community led groundtruthing to generate alternative, ground-up information and data on the environmental performance of projects and industries. The program’s network of field, legal and policy researchers generate qualitative and quantitative data relevant to understanding environmental regulation at a micro level.
